Thank President Obama For Proposing to Increase Title X Funding
On April 10, President Obama released his fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget proposal which included a $327 million allocation to the Title X Family Planning program. This represents a funding increase of $33.1 million.
The program has been subject to over $23.6 million in cuts over the past two fiscal years, including sequestration cuts implemented on March 1, at a time when health centers are experiencing an increase in the number of patients served.
The President’s proposal to increase Title X funding sends a strong message of support for publicly funded family planning services.
