What is the program?

The purpose of the THCGME Program is to support the training of residents in primary care residency training programs in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. Programs will prepare residents to provide high quality care, particularly in rural and underserved communities, and develop competencies to serve these diverse populations and communities. Two award types are available:
1. Expansion awards for an expanded number of resident FTE positions at existing HRSA THCGME Programs.
2. New awards to support new resident FTE positions at new Teaching Health Centers (THCs), as funding permits. New THCs are those applicants that have never received payment under the HRSA THCGME Program for the applicable residency program in any previous fiscal year (FY).
Awards made through this announcement may be utilized to support the costs associated with resident FTE training only. THCGME Program funds may not be used for residency program development (e.g. the costs associated with accreditation). Applicants interested in applying for development funds to achieve accreditation to begin a new community-based primary care residency program should refer to the FY 2021 Teaching Health Center Planning and Development (THCPD) NOFO (HRSA-21-138), which is accessible via Grants.gov.
