What is Title X?
Title X is officially named the “Family Planning Program.” It launched in 1970 as part of the Public Health Service Act. Title X is the only federal grant program aimed exclusively at helping people access family planning services.
Title X is built by communities for communities. The Title X grants provide contraceptive services, supplies, and information to anyone who needs them. Title X also expands access to breast and cervical cancer screenings and STI prevention, testing, and treatment.
Title X is meant to help anyone, but it prioritizes people who live in or near poverty. According to the Family Planning Annual Report, for many people in the U.S., “Title X providers are their only ongoing source of health care and health education.”
