Community-based ambulatory patient care centers that sponsor an accredited primary care residency program can apply through March 31 for grants from the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Program to expand their residency positions, particularly in rural and underserved areas, the Health Resources and Services Administration announced yesterday. HRSA expects to award about $19.2 million in grants. 

In addition, nonprofit organizations can apply through April 4 for up to $525,000 each in fiscal year 2022 funding to provide residential and outpatient substance use disorder treatment and recovery support services to pregnant and postpartum women, particularly in low-income areas, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration announced

Two new reports released by the Department of Health and Human Services in conjunction with the grant announcement focus on substance-exposed pregnancies and how pregnant and postpartum women who use substances and their children can benefit from evidence-based prevention and treatment strategies.
