Team-Based Care Grant

Application deadline: Ongoing

The new Team-Based Care Grant provides $15,000 to eligible family practices that have onboarded interprofessional team members. The grant will help address the costs of recruiting and onboarding into a practice, which physicians have identified as a barrier to creating team-based care practices.

Group Family Practice Development Grant

Application deadline: March 31, 2022 or until funding is exhausted

The GPSC has introduced a new grant to help cover expenses incurred when family doctors join or form a new or expanded group practice.

Community Longitudinal Family Physician (CLFP) Payment

Application dates for 2021: Estimated Fall/Winter 2021

The CLFP payment recognizes community-based family physicians who work under fee-for-service and who care for a panel of patients for providing long-term, relationship-based care.
