Interactive: State Family Planning Contractors

Since budget cuts took effect last September, the Department of State Health Services has implemented the Legislature’s order to reduce family planning funding through its department by two-thirds, from $111 million during the last biennium to $37.9 million in this one. A funding priority system that gives most money to federally qualified and comprehensive health clinics has left many specialty reproductive health providers in a lurch. Nearly all state contractors received drastic reductions in their grant funding. Dozens did not get their contracts renewed, and more than 15 clinics have closed. Though Republican lawmakers made it clear that their goal was to defund abortion providers and affiliates like Planned Parenthood, none of the clinics that lost money or closed actually performed the procedure.

We’re releasing this interactive list of family planning contractors in conjunction with Thanh Tan's six-part "Fertile Ground" series. Family planning funds come from the federal government’s Titles V, X, and XX funds. This money is separate from funds for the Women’s Health Program. (You can find those WHP providers in this companion interactive.)

Take a look at our table below to compare the number of providers who contracted with the state in fiscal years 2011 and 2012. Track how their funding levels have changed, too.

Note:

The contracts of agencies marked with a * were terminated on May 31, 2012. The contracts of agencies marked with a + were terminated on May 1, 2011.
