The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) under the U.S. Department of Health & human Services has announced $33.6 million in fiscal year 2019 funding awards to 50 current Title X grantees in order to supplement their family planning services.

The funds awarded were relinquished by grantees that left the Title X program rather than comply with statutory and regulatory requirements prohibiting federal funding where abortion is a method of family planning.

HHS expects that the supplemental awards will enable grantees to come close to—if not exceed—prior Title X patient coverage.

The recent awards prioritize unserved and underserved jurisdictions and low-income individuals. These awards also prioritize filling service gaps left by the grantees that chose to leave the Title X program rather than comply with the law. These new awards are for a six-month duration; however, the recipients can request additional supplemental awards in their non-competing continuation application for funding starting in April 2020.

HHS said in a press release that the agency “recognizes the importance of continuing services through experienced providers with a history of successfully serving those with the greatest need for assistance.” OPA acted quickly to mitigate the potential interruption in services caused by a minority of recipients that chose to abandon the Title X program between July and September. “HHS is committed to ensuring that Americans have access to high-quality, affordable family planning services, contraceptive care, cancer and HIV screenings, health education, and other health and social services.”
