Primary Care Innovation Grant Program

The 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, created several new programs to support medical and graduate medical education. The Primary Care Innovation Grant Program provides awards, on a competitive basis, to medical schools that administer innovative programs designed to increase the number of primary care physicians in the state. The legislature appropriated $2.037 million for the program awards in Fiscal Years 2014-2015.

In September 2014, the Coordinating Board released the first Request for Applications (RFA) for the Primary Care Innovation Grant Program. Subsequently, the Coordinating Board awarded five two-year grants totaling $1,794,263. The awarded projects focus on students' early and sustained exposure to various aspects of primary care.
