In addition to the federal Title X grant that helped Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina avoid being defunded by the state, the Obama administration has awarded hefty Title X grants to Planned Parenthood affiliates in both Tennessee and New Jersey after state legislators refused to fund the family planning organization in those states as well. According to the Huffington Post, Tennessee has been awarded $395,000 a year for the next three years, and the New Jersey Family Planning League has been given $3.1 million to for Planned Parenthood and other provider clinics. While HHS often contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates through Title X grants, states were not pressured to apply for grants until this year after “defunding in their states created the need for federal money.”
