Grant awards for Unfilled Positions are to provide support for existing accredited residency programs to fill currently approved but unfilled first-year residency positions.
The grants are funded as part of a larger General Revenue appropriation of $7,375,000 in House Bill 1025. Of that total, $3,250,000 is available for Unfilled Position Grants for the 2014 - 2015 biennium. Funding may support a maximum of 25 Unfilled Positions in Fiscal Year 2014 and provide those same positions with equivalent funding in Fiscal Year 2015, for a total of 50 positions supported over the two-year period. Statute mandates that each awarded residency position be funded at $65,000 per year.
