The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Population Affairs recently announced five Title X Service Awards to establish and operate voluntary family planning projects in Montana, Nevada (two awards), Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania.

Family planning services funded through the Title X program include: clinical family planning and related preventive health services; information, education, and counseling related to family planning; and referral services as indicated. By law, Title X funds cannot be used to provide or encourage abortion.

The HHS Office of Population Affairs oversees the Title X Family Planning Program, which funds 91 grantees that support nearly 4,000 family planning clinics nationwide and serve more than 4 million women and men each year.
