The Nursing Innovation Grant Program (NIGP) was established by the 77th Texas Legislature in 2001 and codified in Texas Education Code Chapter 63, Subchapter C, Section 63.202 (f) and (g) to help relieve the state's nursing shortage. It is funded with proceeds from the Texas Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement.
