August 2, 2018 Press Release

Statement from Mary Alice Carter, Executive Director of Equity Forward, on today’s announcement from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding fiscal year’s 2018 Title X grantees

08.02.18 – “Yet again, HHS has chosen obfuscation over transparency when it comes to decisions that will impact the lives of millions.

“From failing to include funding amounts in today’s Title X announcement to withholding information on how it treatsthe children who were ripped from their families due to the administration’s ‘zero tolerance policy,’ Secretary Alex Azar’s HHS continues to raise more questions than answers on vital policy issues.

“Equity Forward will continue to hold HHS accountable and will closely monitor the Title X funding announcement next month.”
