This announcement seeks applications from public and private nonprofit entities to establish and operate voluntary family planning services projects, which shall provide family planning services to all persons desiring such services, with priority for services to persons from low-income families.
1001 (b) assures the right of local and regional entities to apply directly to the Secretary for Title X grant funds.
In a single application, applicants may propose to serve any combination of service areas or subset of a single service area listed.
Applicants should use Table 1 Estimated Funds Available as a guide when developing proposals.
Applicants proposing to serve an entire state (or territory), should base their Federal request (Title X funding request) on the estimated amount for the state listed in Table 1. These estimates are calculated using the number of women in each state (or territory) in need of publically funded contraceptive services (those with family incomes of 0 - 250% of the federal poverty level) as a ratio of the number of women in the 50 states and the District of Columbia in need of publically funded contraceptive services.
This ratio is then used to distribute the money available to each state through approved appropriation funding.
The estimated funding available in Table 1 has been updated to reflect current reported data of women in need of publically funded contraceptive services.
Applicants proposing to serve a subsection of a state should first determine the total number of women in need of publically funded contraceptive services proposed to be served as part of the project and divide that number by the total number of females in need of publically funded contraceptive services for the state.
That ratio should be multiplied by the total funding proposed for the state to provide guidance for the applicants request for federal funding.
For proposals that cover a geographic area in multiple states, complete this process for each subsection of each state to provide guidance for request for federal funding.
