In anticipation of the release of the Final Rule in the coming months, Essential Access Health (Essential Access) – the statewide Title X Grantee in California - is pleased to announce the availability of up to $3 million in funding available for a 12-month period for non-profit family planning providers that do not currently participate in the Title X program.

Title X provides support for equitable, affordable, client-centered, high quality family planning and related health services, for all clients, with priority given to low-income individuals or those who might not otherwise have access to these health care services. Title X also funds programs that provide a broad range of acceptable and effective medically approved family planning methods (including natural family planning methods) and services (including pregnancy testing and counseling, assistance to achieve pregnancy, basic infertility services, STI services, preconception health services, and adolescent friendly health) onsite or via telehealth (telephonic or virtual).
