Title X (Public Health Service Act) Family Planning Program
Title X is administered through the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Although the authorization of appropriations for Title X ended with FY1985, funding for the program has continued through appropriations bills for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies (Labor- HHS-Education). FY2012 funding for Title X was $294 million, 2% less than the FY2011 funding level of $299 million. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (P.L. 112-74) continued previous years' requirements that Title X funds not be spent on abortions, that all pregnancy counseling be nondirective, and that funds not be spent on promoting or opposing any legislative proposal or candidate for public office. Grantees continued to be required to certify that they encourage "family participation" when minors seek family planning services, and certify that they counsel minors on how to resist attempted coercion into sexual activity. The law also clarified that family planning providers are not exempt from state notification and reporting laws on child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest.
