The Title X National Family Planning Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Population Affairs (OPA), is the only federal program dedicated solely to supporting the delivery of family planning and related preventive health care. Title X-funded service sites provide contraception, contraceptive education and counseling; breast and cervical cancer screening; sexually transmitted disease (STD) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing, referral, and prevention education; and pregnancy diagnosis and counseling. The program was funded at $286.5 million for Fiscal Year 2020 and served over 1.5 million low-income, uninsured, and underserved clients in 2020, which was down from 3.1 million in 2019. Title X grants made up about 34% of revenue for family planning services for participating clinics in 2020, providing funds to not only cover the direct costs of family planning services, but also pay for general operating costs such as staff salaries, staff training, rent, and health information technology.
