Family Planning Annual Report Archive
The Family Planning Annual Report (FPAR) is the only source of annual, uniform reporting by all Title X family planning services grantees. It provides consistent, national-level data on the Title X Family Planning Program and its users.
Information from the FPAR is important to OPA for several reasons. First, FPAR data are used to monitor compliance with statutory requirements, regulations, and operational guidance set forth in the Program Guidelines for Project Grants for Family Planning Services ("Program Guidelines"), which include:
- Monitoring compliance with legislative mandates, such as giving priority in the provision of services to low-income persons [Section 1006(c) of Title X of the Public Health Service Act, 42 USC 300], and
- Ensuring that Title X grantees and their subcontractors provide a broad range of family planning methods and services [Section 1001(a) of Title X of the Public Health Service Act, 42 USC 300].
Second, OPA uses FPAR data to comply with accountability and federal performance requirements for Title X family planning funds as required by the 1993 Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). Current GPRA performance goals for the Title X Family Planning Program include priority in the provision of family planning services to low-income individuals, access to and utilization of cervical and breast cancer screening, and access to on-site human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing at Title X-funded clinics.
Finally, the program relies on FPAR data to guide strategic and financial planning, to monitor performance, and to respond to inquiries from policymakers and Congress about the program. The FPAR allows OPA to assemble comparable and relevant program data to answer questions about the characteristics of the population served by Title X projects, utilization of services offered, composition of revenues, and program impact. FPAR data are the basis for objective grant reviews, program evaluation, and assessment of program technical needs.
