Submitted Date Question Answer
11/12/2019 Is it a grant requirement to add at least 1 additional residency position to our program? Or, can the funds be used to expand the rural focus of our curriculum without adding a position? Per RFP Section 2, subsection 2.02 Description of Work and Services, 2nd bullet states "Describe plans to expand an existing program by creating and maintaining additional psychiatry residency positions.
11/12/2019 Can you provide any information on opportunity for future funding beyond June 30, 2020 to support the addition of a new residency position(s)? This RFP is based on funding from a 2019 Iowa Acts appropriation. Since the funding is appropriated each year, IDPH cannot verify if funding will be available in 2020.
