What is Title X?

Title X was enacted as the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act of 1970 (Public Law 91-572) to assist individuals in determining the number and spacing of their children through the provision of affordable, voluntary family planning services.   
 
The Title X Family Planning Program is the only Federal program dedicated solely for the provision of family planning and related preventive health services. The program is designed to provide contraceptive supplies and information to all who want and need them, with priority given to persons from low income families.
 
Title X Guidelines consist of two parts:
  1. Program Requirements, which can be found in Section B of the Program Manual, and
  2. Providing Quality Family Planning Services: Recommendations of CDC and the U.S. Office of Population Affairs (QFP) which can be found in Exhibit B-1 of the Program Manual.
