Amount of funding

Contracts are awarded first to applicants who have secured a one-to-one match for each state dollar in the contract. This match can come from the eligible practice site or the community in which the applicant will practice. If an applicant is unable to secure a match, his/her application will be considered in competition with all other unmatched applications received.

Award amounts vary by profession. A table of amounts by profession can be found in the program guidance.
