Health Care Funding: Planned Parenthood Federation of America Affiliates' Expenditures of Federal Funds, 2016 Through 2018   [open pdf - 310KB]

From the Document: "In order to achieve their programmatic goals, federal agencies provide funding to various organizations that, in turn, use those funds to implement programs and activities aligned with those goals. For example, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) may award funding through grants or cooperative agreements to organizations such as Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) affiliates, who expend those funds to provide health-related services to patients. You asked us to provide information on federal funding to various organizations, including those that offer voluntary family planning and activities related to the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS. The organizations included various domestic organizations such as PPFA affiliates, which operate more than 600 centers across the country, providing sexual and reproductive health-related services, programs related to sexuality education, and advocacy. We issued a report in December 2020 that detailed this funding. This report provides supplemental information to our December 2020 report. Specifically, it describes certain PPFA affiliates' reported expenditures of federal funds from grants and cooperative agreements during fiscal years 2016 through 2018."
