HHS Awards $6.6 Million to Address Increased Need for Title X Family Planning Services
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is awarding $6.6 million through the Title X family planning program to address increased need for family planning services where restrictive laws and policies have impacted reproductive health access. This competitive grant opportunity addressing dire family planning needs was announced as part of a series of recent actions HHS took to protect patients and health care providers in response to the Texas Law SB 8. Today’s awards will go to entities in seven states, including Texas, and were made possible by funds from the American Rescue Plan.
“Our nation’s family planning clinics provide critical health care,” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. “We will continue to take the necessary actions to protect reproductive health care and ensure access to quality family planning services.”
