hrsa_logoAgency: Health Resources & Services Admin.; Program: AREA Health Education (CFDA Number: 93.107) (Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-17-071); Eligibility: Public or private nonprofit accredited medical schools, osteopathic schools of medicine and incorporated consortia made up of such schools or their parent institutions; accredited schools of nursing; Funding: $28 million for 55 awards (a 100% match is required); Deadline (estimated): February (the NOFA is to be posted in November).

Summary: The awards are to enable entities to increase diversity and maintain and improve the effectiveness and capabilities of an existing AHEC program, and make other modifications to the program that are appropriate due to changes in demographics, needs of the population served, or other similar issues affecting the program.

Mandates in the past required that awardees contract with AHEC centers to coordinate and facilitate the training of health professions students, primary care residents, providers, and kindergarten through 12th grade students, with a more targeted focus on 9th through 12th grade health career students. New priorities will be released with the NOFA. More information: https://goo.gl/gtqdaW
