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

About the program

Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-25-079
Dates to Apply: 06/26/2024 to 08/08/2024
Bureau/Office: Bureau of Health Workforce
Status: Open
Estimated Award Date: 10/01/2024
The purpose of the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (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).

Who can apply

Freestanding children’s hospitals whose inpatients are predominantly under 18 years of age, who participate in an approved GME program, and who have a Medicare payment agreement. See Section III.1 of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for complete eligibility information.
