Rural Communities Opioid Response Program – Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (RCORP-NAS)HRSAFederal The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) will be making a $15 million investment, over three years, for approximately 30 grants to reduce the incidence and impact of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).

Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Payment Program HRSA Federal The CHGME Payment Program compensates for the disparity in the level of federal GME funding for freestanding children’s teaching hospitals versus other types of teaching hospitals. Federal funding for graduate medical education (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 Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) administers the program.There are two categories of children’s hospitals that may be eligible for CHGME payments in FY 2021, depending on the funding appropriated to the program: Currently Eligible Hospitals Newly Qualified Hospitals Hospitals that are applying for the first time for the CHGME Payment Program may be hospitals that are new to the CHGME Payment Program but qualify under the “Currently Eligible Hospitals” requirements or eligible as a “Newly Qualified Hospital."$320,000,000.0058-65NANA05-21-202007-24-202010-01-2020NAHRSA-21-01293.255Lisa Flach-Fulcheraflach-fulcher@hrsa.gov(301) 443-0365https://www.hrsa.gov/grants/find-funding/hrsa-21-012
