The Family Planning Council of Iowa (FPCI) plans to provide Title X Family Planning Services in 55 of Iowa’s 99 counties. FPCI plans to provide services to 17,678 individuals of whom 7,444 will have incomes at or below 100% FPL in 2022-2023; with a total of 91,080 individuals of whom 38,354 will have incomes at or below 100% FPL served over the five-year period. For this, FPCI is seeking $2,772,484.00 in Title X Family Planning funds for Year 1 (2022-2023). The funds will be used for direct services and administration of the Project.
The core of FPCI’s Title X Project is assuring availability of high-quality clinical family planning services to low-income and the historically marginalized, medically underserved populations. It addresses the provision of community education and outreach programs and the promotion of family planning services within the health care delivery system. Ensuring high quality of care and safety through staff training, monitoring and oversight are also objectives of the Project. FPCI assures that all Title X administrative, clinical and fiscal requirements are met at the grantee and subrecipient level. FPCI will work to ensure that its family planning network is positioned to participate in the changing health care systems and utilize health information technology to maintain compliance with all federal reporting mechanisms, including the implementation of FPAR 2.0.
The administration of the Project will be provided by the FPCI Board of Directors and key project staff at the corporate headquarters at 108 3rd Street, Suite 220, Des Moines, IA. FPCI will subcontract with ten subrecipient agencies to provide Title X family planning services at 16 clinic sites, offering the full range of family planning services as required by Title X. The subrecipients and FPCI will provide community education and outreach programs.
Key partners include statewide organizations such as the IA Primary Care Association, IA Community Action Association and IA Public Health Association; state agencies such as IA Dept. of Public Health and IA Dept. of Human Services.
Services are provided in accordance with all applicable Federal and State requirements; in agreement with the standards prescribed by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
