Restore Title XPresident Biden’s executive action on Title X was an important step, but the administration needs to act quickly to fully restore this federal program that provides family planning to low income patients.Inorder to bring Title X-supportedservices back into areas that have been without Title X funding, HHSneeds to issue rulemaking within 30 days that will rescind the Trump rule and reinstate the regulations that previously governed the Title X program.Rescinding the Trump rule must happen swiftly so that HHS can compete for funds in order to restore services to the 1.5 million people who have gone without Title X-funded services for over a year.Rescission of the rule is essential to bring back the hundreds of health centers that left Title X due to the Trump rule.The rulemaking and competitive funding process will take many months to complete, which is why it is imperative that the Biden administration begin this process as quickly as possible.NY has been providing “emergency”state funds to help fill the funding gap, but that money will not be sustained past March 31, 2021. Especially with the state budget under so much pressure, getting federal Title X back is critical.
