The Licensure Portability Grant Program (LPGP) will provide funding for state licensing boards to develop and implement state policies that will reduce statutory and regulatory barriers to telemedicine, with the ultimate goal of addressing workforce shortages and improving access to care in underserved and rural areas. The program seeks to support innovative multi-state collaborations that would enable licensed healthcare professionals to practice telemedicine across states.

Historically, projects have worked to reduce the redundancies that complicate and delay the process of obtaining medical licensure in multiple jurisdictions, such as:

  • Uniform online applications for use in physician and psychologist licensure by multiple states
  • Multi-state licensure compacts allowing for a more efficient and less burdensome application process for physicians, nurses, and psychologists

Eligible applicants are state professional licensing boards.
