Title X Program Requirements
NOTE: On March 4, 2019, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published a final rule in the Federal Register that revises the regulations governing the Title X family planning program. The Program Requirements document and related source materials are currently being updated to reflect the revised regulations.
The Program Requirements for Title X Funded Family Planning Projects were developed to assist current and prospective grantees in understanding and implementing the family planning grants program authorized by Title X of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 300 et seq.). The document is organized into 16 sections that describe the various requirements applicable to the Title X program, as set out in the Title X statute and implementing regulations (42 CFR part 59, subpart A), and in other applicable Federal statutes, regulations, and policies.
