What is Title X?

Federal funding for sexual and reproductive healthcare

Every Body Texas is the statewide Title X Family Planning administrator for Texas.

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.”

Who can receive Title X services?

Anyone who can cause a pregnancy or become pregnant can be a Title X client if they are receiving Title X services. That includes:

  • People who can’t afford to pay for healthcare
  • People without health insurance
  • People who don’t have government-issued identification
  • Adolescents seeking reproductive health care, such as birth control, without parental consent

If any of these apply to you, you can find a Title X clinic nearest to you.
