Quick Start Guide: Requesting a Site Closure

What: This guide outlines how to request that a service site be removed from the Title X Family Planning Clinic Locator and database due to closure or because it no longer receives Title X funding.

Your regional project officer (RPO) and grantee should be engaged in this process. Prior to removing a site, please ensure that the grantee has submitted and received approval for this change in scope. Sites will not be approved for deletion without approval from the Office of Grants Management. For more information on preparing for a closure, reference these documents:
