Find a Title X Family Planning Clinic Near You
More than 2,700 Title X family planning clinics in the United States deliver the highest national standards of care to clients across all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and eight U.S. territories and freely associated states. These public and private nonprofit health and community-based clinics provide access to a broad range of family planning and related preventive health services to adults and adolescents. In addition to family planning services, Title X clinics also provide essential preventive health services that benefit reproductive health. These services include HPV vaccination; HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), breast and cervical cancer screening; and screening for obesity, smoking, drug and alcohol use, mental health, and intimate partner violence.
Title X services are voluntary, confidential, and provided regardless of one’s ability to pay. For many clients, the Title X clinic is their only ongoing source of healthcare and health education. To help people find services in their area, you can direct them to the Family Planning Clinic Locator. They can type in a ZIP Code or city into the search bar and the Family Planning Clinic Locator will pull up clinics within a 50-mile radius. Now users can also search for “telehealth” and “mobile clinic” locations to receive family planning services.
You can host this Family Planning Clinic Locator widget on your website to help people find Title X services in their area.

As part of its youth engagement efforts, OPA invited young people ages 13-21 from its Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) programs to submit videos, poems, stories, art, photos, and voice recordings for Youth Create!. Submissions addressed at least one of the following prompts: What has helped you and other youth get through the pandemic? How has being part of a TPP program impacted your life? What does a healthy future mean to you and others your age? Explore the collection of all youth-created content, view the compilation video, and promote Youth Create! on social media using sample language found in the toolkit for grantees and the toolkit for youth.
This year, OPA will engage more young people in Youth Create! 2022. Youth in TPP programs will have another opportunity to submit content on several themes. Look for more information and the call for submissions in March.
