The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced the availability of $19.2 million in American Rescue Plan funding to support and expand community-based primary care residency programs.  

Awardees will use this funding to train residents to provide quality care to diverse populations and communities, particularly in underserved and rural areas.  

The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education program supports primary care residency training programs in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. These training sites offer primary care and dental residents experience working with diverse, high-need patient communities in areas that often lack these resources.
