About FPAR 2.0
Family Planning Annual Report (FPAR) 2.0 is the next iteration of FPAR data reporting that will collect encounter-level data for Title X family planning service grantees. FPAR 2.0 will allow for improved data collection, reporting, and analysis that will ultimately allow for more opportunities to improve service delivery. The current method of aggregate level FPAR 1.0 data reporting will end in 2022 (see table below).
Grantees will start collecting encounter-level data in 2022 and report it for the first time in 2023. A new data system for grantees to upload FPAR data is in development. OPA will work with grantees to provide features, analyses, and reports that utilize FPAR data and will help inform quality improvement efforts.
FPAR 2.0 Resources
An updated Data Element file that includes the newly approved sexual orientation and gender identity elements is posted below. The updated file contains a README tab with guidance for using the file, and a log describing key updates to the data element file posted in March 2022.
The Implementation Guide contains important information for grantees, data vendors, and other stakeholders. Specifically, it provides grantees with (1) a brief introduction to FPAR 2.0, (2) general instructions on completing the FPAR, (3) a review of key terms and definitions, (4) guidance on FPAR 2.0 reporting pathways, (5) FPAR 2.0 data requirements, (6) data elements, (7) information on FPAR 2.0 data privacy, and (8) technical assistance resources.

Frequently Asked Questions
The FAQ page lists frequently asked questions received through webinars, the Title X conference, and through emails to OPA and TA vendors. This page will be updated frequently and will serve as a resource for grantees and data system vendors.
OPA and its contractors will provide comprehensive technical assistance (TA) using a collaborative and coordinated approach to help grantees transition to the new FPAR 2.0 data system. These activities include group and individualized technical assistance to end users of the system via formal trainings, written materials, and other documentation. TA materials and assistance is available to grantees, subrecipients, and EHR vendors. Note, only grantees will have access to submit data, so we encourage ongoing coordination between grantees and their partners.
