Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program

About the program

Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-24-020
Dates to Apply: 06/01/2023 to 07/14/2023

Status: Closed
Estimated Award Date: 10/01/2023
This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program. The purpose of the CHGME Payment Program is to compensate for the disparity in the level of federal graduate medical education (GME) funding for freestanding children’s teaching hospitals versus other types of teaching hospitals. Federal funding for GME is primarily provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and goes to full-service teaching hospitals that serve primarily adult patients. Freestanding children’s hospitals receive little to no GME funding from Medicare because children’s hospitals have a low Medicare caseload. The CHGME Payment Program is administered by the Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). For more details, see Program Requirements and Expectations under VI. Award Administration Information

Who can apply

There are two categories of children’s hospitals that may be eligible for CHGME payments, depending on the funding appropriated to the program – “Currently Eligible Hospitals” and “Newly Qualified Hospitals.” Hospitals that are applying for the first time for the CHGME Payment Program may be hospitals that are new to the CHGME Payment Program but qualify under the “Currently Eligible Hospitals” requirements or are eligible as a “Newly Qualified Hospital.”
