Power to Decide FY 2019 Appropriations Request Letter

Power to Decide is requesting the following funding levels within the FY 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (LHHS) appropriations bill: $110 million for the evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program and language that ensures continuation of the current evidence-based approach and the current grantees, $6.8 million under the Public Health Services Act for evaluation of teenage pregnancy prevention approaches, $327 million for the Title X Family Planning Program, as well as language ensuring that these programs are implemented in the high quality manner which they previously have been. Though Congress faces tough budget decisions, making modest investments in high quality programs that reduce unplanned pregnancy makes fiscal sense and can pay great dividends for individuals and communities.
