Funding opportunity: HRSA will provide money for residency positions

The HRSA will give $19.2 million to a maximum of 30 institutions. Applications are due March 31.


The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will be investing in the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education program. With help from the American Rescue Plan, HRSA will monetarily support the training of residents in primary care residency training programs in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. The programs will help residents learn how to provide a high-quality level of patient care, and will hone in on the skills necessary to serve those in rural and underserved communities.

The HRSA will give $19.2 million to a maximum of 30 recipients, to go toward resident positions at Teaching Health Care Centers. HRSA hopes to encourage the development of new residents who will be able to better serve diverse populations.

Monetary awards will be available for both resident full-time equivalent (FTE) positions at existing HRSA THCGME programs, and new resident FTE positions at new Teaching Health Centers. Eligible applicants include Native American tribal governments (federally recognized), Native American tribal organizations (other than federally recognized tribal governments), public and state-controlled institutions of higher education, private institutions of higher education, and nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education.

Applications to receive funding are due March 31, 2022, and are available here.
