Have questions about the Family Planning Services Grant? The Grant Geek is happy to answer them!
There is a grant program that was just released called the “Family Planning Services Grants” and it is offered through the Department of Health and Human Services. Not only is this a really important service that needs to be provided, especially in low income communities, but they are offering up to 100 grants to organizations that submit the best proposals. 100 grants! That is a tremendously high amount of awards for a federal competitive funding opportunity. Each grant award will be at least $150,000 per year for three years and if you are serving a large population, grants can go up to $22 million!
This is a wonderful program designed to support organizations to establish and operate voluntary family planning services projects, which includes family planning services for both men and women as they plan their families. Such services include postponing, preventing, achieving, or facilitating the spacing of pregnancy. Family planning services also include infertility services, health screenings and exams, lab tests and related health services which are important to family planning and male and female reproductive health, improving the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy and birth, should conception occur.
