Program Element 46

What is Program Element (PE) 46?

PE 46 is the new Reproductive Health Program Element (PE) titled, Community Participation and Assurance of Access to Reproductive Health Services. It was developed in collaboration with CLHO and approved in February 2018. The funding for PE 46 is Title X and is based on a new formula that incorporates a number of factors, including: county population, urban vs. rural communities, Chlamydia rates, and Women in Need. PE 46 will be added to the FAA in September 2018 (based upon award of Title X grant funds by OPA). 

The focus of PE 46 is to assure access to clinical RH services throughout the state. LPHAs will be expected to work with community partners to identify gaps and barriers to service, and develop and implement plans to enhance access, especially for those most marginalized. This work aligns with the goals of public health modernization and the Modernization Manual was referenced to determine the deliverables.
