The Office of the Public Health and Safety's work is greatly centered on coordinating public health and science issues to the HHS.

In keeping with the agency's objectives, OPHS has recently established a funding opportunity entitled Family Planning Services Grants, a program wherein the OPHS, along with the HHS, will award grants to eligible individuals who seek to operate voluntary family planning services projects that would provide family planning services to everyone who desires to avail of such services, including low-income families in under-served areas.

The proposed family planning services should will have to include clinical family planning and related preventive health services, information, education and counseling associated with family planning practices, and referral services.
