Planning Grants

In 2013, the 83rd Texas Legislature created several new grant programs to support expansion of graduate medical education (GME) in the state. Planning Grants are intended to promote an increase in available first-year residency positions by providing support to entities that do not operate a GME program to investigate the feasibility of establishing such a program.

The grants are funded from a General Revenue appropriation of $1,875,000. For Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015, funding is available to support maximum of 12 applicants funded up to $150,000 each for one-time, two-year awards.

Eligibility is limited to entities that do not currently operate, and have not previously operated, a GME program and are therefore eligible for Medicare GME funding. Nine Planning Grants were awarded for Fiscal Years 2014 - 2015, and three Planning Grants were awarded for Fiscal Years 2015 - 2016.
