New and Expanded Program Grants were created by House Bill 1025, 83rd Texas Legislature, codified as Texas Education Code (TEC) 58A. For fiscal years 2014 and 2015, $7,375,000 were appropriated in general revenue funds for Graduate Medical Education (GME) New and Expanded Programs Grants together with Unfilled Position Grants, which were also established by House Bill 1025.
Grant awards for New and Expanded Programs support a) expansion of the number of accreditor-approved first-year residency positions in existing GME programs, and/or b) establishment of new GME programs with first-year residency positions. The grants are intended to provide funding for direct resident costs, including resident stipends and benefits. Statute mandates that each awarded residency position be funded at $65,000 per year, with the exception of Planning Grant-supported new positions, which must be funded at $35,000 per year. Awarded positions must be filled before funding is disbursed.
