SF 2194 would require the department of public health to annually apply to the United States Department of Health and Human Services for grant funding under Title X of the Federal Public Health Services Act.

The bill would require any funds granted to be distributed in a manner that continues access to family planning services, but are not to be distributed to any entity that provides abortions,  or that maintains or operates a facility where abortions are performed.

The bill further specifies that the funds distributed may not be used for direct or indirect costs, including but not limited to administrative costs or expenses, overhead, employee salaries, rent, and telephone and other utility costs, related to providing abortions.

The Department of Public Health, beginning with any contract entered into on or after July 1, 2018, would be required to administer the state personal responsibility education program and the state abstinence education grant program to exclude as an eligible applicant any applicant entity that provides abortions, maintains or operates facilities where abortions are performed, or regularly makes referrals to an entity that provides abortions or maintains or operates a facility where abortions are performed.
