WASHINGTON D.C. (NMB) – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced Wednesday the awarding of $2.025 million to Bridgercare to support a statewide network of Title X providers known as Montana Family Planning beginning on April 1st.
A press release states that the award also ensures that new state restrictions on Title X funding and services designed to exclude Bridgercare and other committed and experienced providers will have no impact on the delivery of Title X services to the people of Montana. Montana Family Planning will replace the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services as the sole administrator of federal Title X funds.
Title X is the only federal grant program dedicated solely to providing individuals with comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services. Bridgercare has served as a subrecipient of Title X funding since 1972 and is the largest freestanding family planning clinic in the current Montana Title X network.
