Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Program Grants Available

The Health Resources and Services Administration is accepting applications through July 17 for the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Payment Program (CHGME). With $100 million in funding available to 60 awardees, the program aims to support freestanding children’s hospitals’ training of pediatric and other residents in GME programs. Eligible applicants include freestanding children’s hospitals that participate in an approved GME program, have a Medicare provider agreement and whose inpatients are predominantly under 18 years of age.

CHGME will hold an Initial Application Technical Assistance webinar June 30 from 10 a.m. – noon (PT). To register, visit https://hrsa.connectsolutions.com/chgmeinitialfy16.

Hospitals that apply for funding are encouraged to notify the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development at HCRWorkforce@oshpd.ca.gov so it can report the number of California stakeholders applying for federal grants. Hospitals interested in receiving a letter of support from the state can submit a request to HCRWorkforce@oshpd.ca.gov. Requests must include the addressee’s name, the amount of funding requested and the grant objective. Requests for letters should be submitted as soon as possible – and no later than July 2 – as processing typically requires two to three weeks. For more information, visit HRSA’s grant site.
