Las Vegas, NV. --  Governor Steve Sisolak announced in his state of the state address that his budget will include an allocation $6 million to the state funded planning grant program over the biennium during this evening’s State of the State address. Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada commends the governor for prioritizing family planning and reproductive health care statewide. This announcement shows Governor Sisolak’s commitment to protecting crucial family planning services and health providers. 


An investment like this would help the thousands of Planned Parenthood patients in Nevada who utilize essential family planning services including birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing and treatment.  According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2014, Nevada only met 10 percent of the need for publicly funded family planning services. The Governor’s commitment to investing in family planning will go a long way in improving that.   

Statement of Lindsey Harmon, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada:  

“Governor Sisolak is making good on his promise to protect health care for Nevadans. It is great to see our new Governor take the initiative to protect these services for the tens of thousands of Nevadans who use them every year.” 

“By making family planning resources a priority in the state’s budget, Governor Sisolak is laying the groundwork for a healthier Nevada. We look forward to working with the Governor and our state legislature, which is now a women majority led body, throughout the upcoming session to make Nevada a better and healthier place for our mothers and families.”  

About Planned Parenthood Health Centers in Nevada:  

Planned Parenthood health centers provide birth control, cancer screenings, and other essential reproductive health care services to 16,000 Nevadans every year.  According the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood health centers served 36 percent of all family planning patients who were accessing publicly funded providers in the state. Polling shows that Nevadans overwhelmingly support Planned Parenthood.
