Grant awards are to support a) expansion of the number of accreditor-approved first-year residency program positions, or b) establishment of new first-year residency programs. Existing graduate medical education (GME) programs seeking to expand or create new GME programs must apply for grant awards by October 1 of each year and the Coordinating Board must determine the grant recipients by January 1 of the following year. Maximum award is $65,000 per newly created residency position, depending on available appropriation. The grants are intended to assist residency programs by providing money to pay for direct resident costs, including resident stipends and benefits.
