for the long-term impact of access to LARC Census project  
This grant to the University of Colorado at Boulder will support research to assess the effect of access to high-quality family planning under the Colorado Family Planning Initiative on poverty status and economic stability of women and their families. While this question is crucial to policy arguments worldwide, it has rarely been studied with adequate data on the women whom family planning programs are intended to assist.
