The regulations of this subpart are applicable to the award of grants under section 1001 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300) to assist in the establishment and operation of voluntary family planning projects. These projects shall consist of the educational, comprehensive medical, and social services necessary to aid individuals to determine freely the number and spacing of their children.

Low income family means a family whose total annual income does not exceed 100 percent of the most recent Poverty Guidelines issued pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 9902(2). "Low-income family" also includes members of families whose annual family income exceeds this amount, but who, as determined by the project director, are unable, for good reasons, to pay for family planning services. For example, unemancipated minors who wish to receive services on a confidential basis must be considered on the basis of their own resources.

Sec. 59.3 Who is eligible to apply for a family planning services grant?

Any public or nonprofit private entity in a State may apply for a grant under this subpart.

Sec. 59.4 How does one apply for a family planning services grant?

  1. Application for a grant under this subpart shall be made on an authorized form.
  2. An individual authorized to act for the applicant and to assume on behalf of the applicant the obligations imposed by the terms and conditions of the grant, including the regulations of this subpart, must sign the application.
  3. The application shall contain--
    1. A description, satisfactory to the Secretary, of the project and how it will meet the requirements of this subpart;
    2. A budget and justification of the amount of grant funds requested;
    3. A description of the standards and qualifications which will be required for all personnel and for all facilities to be used by the project; and
    4. Such other pertinent information as the Secretary may require.

Sec. 59.5 What requirements must be met by a family planning project?

  1. Each project supported under this part must:
    1. Provide a broad range of acceptable and effective medically approved family planning methods (including natural family planning methods) and services (including infertility services and services for adolescents). If an organization offers only a single method of family planning, it may participate as part of a project as long as the entire project offers a broad range of family planning services.
    2. Provide services without subjecting individuals to any coercion to accept services or to employ or not to employ any particular methods of family planning. Acceptance of services must be solely on a voluntary basis and may not be made a prerequisite to eligibility for, or receipt of, any other services, assistance from or participation in any other program of the applicant.1
    3. Provide services in a manner which protects the dignity of the individual.
    4. Provide services without regard to religion, race, color, national origin, handicapping condition, age, sex, number of pregnancies, or marital status.
    5. Not provide abortion as a method of family planning. A project must:
      1. Offer pregnant women the opportunity to be provided information and counseling regarding each of the following options:
        1. Prenatal care and delivery;
        2. Infant care, foster care, or adoption; and
        3. Pregnancy termination.
      2. If requested to provide such information and counseling, provide neutral, factual information and nondirective counseling on each of the options, and referral upon request, except with respect to any option(s) about which the pregnant woman indicates she does not wish to receive such information and counseling.
    6. Provide that priority in the provision of services will be given to persons from low-income families.
    7. Provide that no charge will be made for services provided to any persons from a low-income family except to the extent that payment will be made by a third party (including a government agency) which is authorized to or is under legal obligation to pay this charge.
    8. Provide that charges will be made for services to persons other than those from low-income families in accordance with a schedule of discounts based on ability to pay, except that charges to persons from families whose annual income exceeds 250 percent of the levels set forth in the most recent Poverty Guidelines issued pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 9902(2) will be made in accordance with a schedule of fees designed to recover the reasonable cost of providing services.
    9. If a third party (including a Government agency) is authorized or legally obligated to pay for services, all reasonable efforts must be made to obtain the third-party payment without application of any discounts. Where the cost of services is to be reimbursed under title XIX, XX, or XXI of the Social Security Act, a written agreement with the title XIX, XX or XXI agency is required.
      1. Provide that if an application relates to consolidation of service areas or health resources or would otherwise affect the operations of local or regional entities, the applicant must document that these entities have been given, to the maximum feasible extent, an opportunity to participate in the development of the application. Local and regional entities include existing or potential subgrantees which have previously provided or propose to provide family planning services to the area proposed to be served by the applicant.
      2. Provide an opportunity for maximum participation by existing or potential subgrantees in the ongoing policy decisionmaking of the project.
    10. Provide for an Advisory Committee as required by Sec. 59.6.
  2. In addition to the requirements of paragraph (a) of this section, each project must meet each of the following requirements unless the Secretary determines that the project has established good cause for its omission. Each project must:
    1. Provide for medical services related to family planning (including physician's consultation, examination prescription, and continuing supervision, laboratory examination, contraceptive supplies) and necessary referral to other medical facilities when medically indicated, and provide for the effective usage of contraceptive devices and practices.
    2. Provide for social services related to family planning, including counseling, referral to and from other social and medical services agencies, and any ancillary services which may be necessary to facilitate clinic attendance.
    3. Provide for informational and educational programs designed to--
      1. Achieve community understanding of the objectives of the program;
      2. Inform the community of the availability of services; and
      3. Promote continued participation in the project by persons to whom family planning services may be beneficial.
    4. Provide for orientation and in-service training for all project personnel.
    5. Provide services without the imposition of any durational residency requirement or requirement that the patient be referred by a physician.
    6. Provide that family planning medical services will be performed under the direction of a physician with special training or experience in family planning.
    7. Provide that all services purchased for project participants will be authorized by the project director or his designee on the project staff.
    8. Provide for coordination and use of referral arrangements with other providers of health care services, local health and welfare departments, hospitals, voluntary agencies, and health services projects supported by other federal programs.
    9. Provide that if family planning services are provided by contract or other similar arrangements with actual providers of services, services will be provided in accordance with a plan which establishes rates and method of payment for medical care. These payments must be made under agreements with a schedule of rates and payment procedures maintained by the grantee. The grantee must be prepared to substantiate, that these rates are reasonable and necessary.
    10. Provide, to the maximum feasible extent, an opportunity for participation in the development, implementation, and evaluation of the project by persons broadly representative of all significant elements of the population to be served, and by others in the community knowledgeable about the community's needs for family planning services.

[65 FR 41278, July 3, 2000; 65 FR 49057, Aug. 10, 2000]

Sec. 59.6 What procedures apply to assure the suitability of informational and educational material?

  1. A grant under this section may be made only upon assurance satisfactory to the Secretary that the project shall provide for the review and approval of informational and educational materials developed or made available under the project by an Advisory Committee prior to their distribution, to assure that the materials are suitable for the population or community to which they are to be made available and the purposes of title X of the Act. The project shall not disseminate any such materials which are not approved by the Advisory Committee.
  2. The Advisory Committee referred to in paragraph (a) of this section shall be established as follows:
    1. Size. The Committee shall consist of no fewer than five but not more than nine members, except that this provision may be waived by the Secretary for good cause shown.
    2. Composition. The Committee shall include individuals broadly representative (in terms of demographic factors such as race, color, national origin, handicapped condition, sex, and age) of the population or community for which the materials are intended.
    3. Function. In reviewing materials, the Advisory Committee shall:
      1. Consider the educational and cultural backgrounds of individuals to whom the materials are addressed;
      2. Consider the standards of the population or community to be served with respect to such materials;
      3. Review the content of the material to assure that the information is factually correct;
      4. Determine whether the material is suitable for the population or community to which is to be made available; and
      5. Establish a written record of its determinations.

Sec. 59.7 What criteria will the Department of Health and Human Services use to decide which family planning services projects to fund and in what amount?

  1. (a) Within the limits of funds available for these purposes, the Secretary may award grants for the establishment and operation of those projects which will in the Department's judgment best promote the purposes of section 1001 of the Act, taking into account:
    1. The number of patients, and, in particular, the number of low-income patients to be served;
    2. The extent to which family planning services are needed locally;
    3. The relative need of the applicant;
    4. The capacity of the applicant to make rapid and effective use of the federal assistance;
    5. The adequacy of the applicant's facilities and staff;
    6. The relative availability of non-federal resources within the community to be served and the degree to which those resources are committed to the project; and
    7. The degree to which the project plan adequately provides for the requirements set forth in these regulations.
  2. (b) The Secretary shall determine the amount of any award on the basis of his estimate of the sum necessary for the performance of the project. No grant may be made for less than 90 percent of the project's costs, as so estimated, unless the grant is to be made for a project which was supported, under section 1001, for less than 90 percent of its costs in fiscal year 1975. In that case, the grant shall not be for less than the percentage of costs covered by the grant in fiscal year 1975.
  3. (c) No grant may be made for an amount equal to 100 percent for the project's estimated costs.

Sec. 59.8 How is a grant awarded?

  1. The notice of grant award specifies how long HHS intends to support the project without requiring the project to recompete for funds. This period, called the project period, will usually be for three to five years.
  2. Generally the grant will initially be for one year and subsequent continuation awards will also be for one year at a time. A grantee must submit a separate application to have the support continued for each subsequent year. Decisions regarding continuation awards and the funding level of such awards will be made after consideration of such factors as the grantee's progress and management practices, and the availability of funds. In all cases, continuation awards require a determination by HHS that continued funding is in the best interest of the government.
  3. Neither the approval of any application nor the award of any grant commits or obligates the United States in any way to make any additional, supplemental, continuation, or other award with respect to any approved application or portion of an approved application.

Sec. 59.9 For what purpose may grant funds be used?

Any funds granted under this subpart shall be expended solely for the purpose for which the funds were granted in accordance with the approved application and budget, the regulations of this subpart, the terms and conditions of the award, and the applicable cost principles prescribed in 45 CFR Part 74 or Part 92, as applicable.

Sec. 59.10 What other HHS regulations apply to grants under this subpart?

  • 45 CFR Part 92--Uniform administrative requirements for grants and cooperative agreements to state and local governments

Sec. 59.11 Confidentiality.

All information as to personal facts and circumstances obtained by the project staff about individuals receiving services must be held confidential and must not be disclosed without the individual's documented consent, except as may be necessary to provide services to the patient or as required by law, with appropriate safeguards for confidentiality. Otherwise, information may be disclosed only in summary, statistical, or other form which does not identify particular individuals.

Sec. 59.12 Additional conditions.

The Secretary may, with respect to any grant, impose additional conditions prior to or at the time of any award, when in the Department's judgment these conditions are necessary to assure or protect advancement of the approved program, the interests of public health, or the proper use of grant funds.

      1. Any amount not accounted for pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section;
      2. Any credits for earned interest pursuant to paragraph (c)(1) of this section;
      3. Any other amounts due pursuant to subparts F, M, and O of 45 CFR part 74.

Such total sum shall constitute a debt owed by the grantee to the Federal Government and shall be recovered from the grantee or its successors or assignees by setoff or other action as provided by law.
