Doctors Across New York Awards

2011-2012

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) released two new Requests for Applications (RFAs) for the Doctors Across New York (DANY) Loan Repayment and Practice Support programs. This is a rolling application process that will continue until March 30, 2012, or until all the funds have been expended, whichever comes first. The definition of under-served areas is far more flexible than National Health Service Corps requirements. Providers that are not located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) or Medically Under-served Areas (MUA) can qualify if they identify other indicators.

Loan Repayment

Successful applicants would be eligible to receive up to $150,000 in loan repayment for a five-year commitment to the provider in an identified under-served area. DOH anticipates making about 40 awards. One-third of the awards will go to New York City, with the remaining awards going to the rest of the state.

Practice Support

Successful applicants can receive $100,000 for a two-year commitment to a provider in the under-served area. In addition to receiving funding for certain aspects of practice support, the funding can also be used for loan repayment for a two-year commitment to the under-served area. DOH anticipates making 70 awards, one-third of which will be in New York City.

Several changes were made in Cycle 2 that differ from Cycle 1:

Physicians hired on or after July 1, 2010 are eligible to apply for this funding.
