The Minority Health Research and Education Grant Program (MHGP) was established by the 76th Texas Legislature in 1999 and codified in Texas Education Code Chapter 63, Subchapter D, Sections 63.301-63.302. It provides funding to eligible institutions of higher education to conduct research and educational programs on public health issues affecting one or more minority groups in Texas. It is funded with proceeds from the Texas Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement.
MHGP supported various initiatives over the years, such as Allied Health Pathways to Success, Academic-Clinical Partnerships, and Recruitment & Retention.
