Since 1970, a critical source of affordable high-quality family planning care for low-income women, men, and adolescents across the United States has been the network of providers that receive funds through the Federal Title X Family Planning Program. The program, administered by the Office of Population Affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services under the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, funds a network of approximately 4,000 service sites around the country. The Title X program is an important cornerstone in efforts to meet the needs of low-income Americans; Title X funds subsidize family planning services for women, men, and adolescents who may not have health insurance or who are not eligible for Medicaid. Millions of individuals (nearly 9 million) receive publicly funded family planning (FP) services each year, and 4.6 million of them obtain care from a health center that receives Title X funding.
