Planning Grants

In 2013, the 83rd Texas Legislature created several new grant programs to support expansion of graduate medical education (GME) in the state. The Planning Grants Program was intended to promote an increase in available first-year residency positions by increasing the number of hospitals engaged in training residents. In 2015, the program was expanded, as the Planning and Partnership Grant Program, to provide support for hospitals, medical schools, and community-based health centers interested in creating new residency programs. The program also encourages the creation of partnerships between applicants and existing GME programs for the purpose of developing new residency programs.

The grants are funded from a General Revenue appropriation. For Fiscal Years 2016 and 2017, funding of $3,500,000 is available to support maximum of 14 applicants funded up to $250,000 each for one-time, two-year awards.

The Coordinating Board is currently accepting grant applications for the Planning and Partnership Grant Program.

Submission of a Notice of Intent by the established deadline is required to qualify for application submission.
