Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit organization, hospital, government agency, IHE, tribe, faith-based organization, or community-based organization to provide technical support to new programs for physicians in rural areas. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to provide technical assistance (TA) to HRSA’s Rural Residency Planning and Development (RRPD) Program award recipients to support the creation of new rural residency programs that will expand the rural physician workforce. The RRPD-TA award recipient will provide TA, tools and resources to current and future RRPD Program award recipients to help overcome significant challenges and barriers involved in developing new rural residency programs. The priority for TA will be RRPD Program award recipients. However, limited TA resources may be publicly available for other entities interested in developing new rural residency programs.

Program Objectives:

  • Promote the rural residency-to-rural workforce pipeline by supporting the development of new rural residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, OB/GYN, general surgery, preventive medicine, and other specialties as determined by HRSA in future NOFOs. TA provided may include assistance in curriculum development, faculty recruitment and development, clinical and community partnerships, and program administration;
  • Support RRPD Program award recipients’ efforts to establish and maintain new rural residency programs and achieve program accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME);
  • Assist with identifying, qualifying for, and securing (as applicable) Medicare graduate medical education (GME) funding and/or other sustainable pathways of funding rural residencies such as Medicaid, state, or private funding;
  • Identify, track, analyze, and translate key policy, regulatory, and programmatic issues to inform RRPD Program award recipients and other rural stakeholders about changes, knowledge gaps, or other challenges impacting rural residency programs and rural GME funding;
  • Analyze overall impact of the RRPD-TA and RRPD Program activities and funding on rural communities (e.g., rural physician workforce) in consultation with HRSA; and
  • Promote rural residency training to medical students.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$4,300,000

Number of Grants:

1

Term of Contract:

September 30, 2021 through September 29, 2025 (4 years)

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible entities are domestic public or private nonprofit organizations, including tribes and tribal organizations, faith-based and community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, state and local governments, and hospitals.

Recipients of the RRPD Program (HRSA-19-088 and HRSA-20-107) are not eligible to receive funding under this notice. Similarly, the RRPD-TA award recipient will not be eligible for funding under the RRPD Program, contingent on future funding opportunities.

Entities must have the capability to be national in scope (i.e., much broader than a local, multi-state, or regional focus) to reflect the distribution of current and future RRPD cohorts. HRSA strongly encourages the applicant organization to have partnerships and/or establish and sustain a consortium to fulfill the full range of activities outlined in this notice. Partner examples include, but are not limited to Academic Health Centers affiliated with rural residencies, including family medicine department chairs and medical school deans; State Offices of Rural Health; Area Health Education Centers; Medical & Professional Associations involved in residency training such as Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Osteopathic Association; Teaching Health Centers; and national rural associations.
