The goal of the Family Planning Program is to provide individuals the information and means to exercise personal choice in determining the number and spacing of their children, and to provide access to additional health services that would lead to the overall improvement in the health of those individuals, prioritizing services to low-income and high risk individuals.
The Kansas Legislature established two priorities related to contracting for the delivery of family planning services: First priority is to be given to public entities (state, county, and local health departments and health clinics); and, if any moneys remain, then, second priority is to be given to non-public entities which are hospitals or federally qualified health centers that provide comprehensive primary and preventative care in addition to family planning services.
Based on the availability of State or Federal funds, the State Agency determines the base award to the Local Agency on the 3-year average of unduplicated number of Family Planning Users. Funding is also subject to legislative and policy priorities.
Local Agency continuation grants are funded equal to at least 80 percent of the previous year's base award and the remaining 20 percent of funds may be allocated based on performance data. The amount of funding a local agency requests in the grant application should be based on the cost to provide services.
