The Area Health Education Center (AHEC) program provides grants to develop and enhance education and training networks within communities, academic institutions, and community-based organizations. In turn, these networks support the Bureau of Health Workforce's strategic priorities to increase diversity among health professionals, broaden the distribution of the health workforce, enhance healthcare quality, and improve healthcare delivery to rural and underserved areas and populations.

For this opportunity, HRSA has identified evidence-based practices and promising approaches established through previous AHEC awards. Consult the application instructions for descriptions of required activities for this round of funding.


Public or nonprofit private accredited schools of allopathic medicine and osteopathic medicine and incorporated consortia made up of such schools, or the parent institutions of such schools are eligible. In states and territories in which no AHEC program is in operation, an accredited school of nursing is an eligible applicant.
