TMAF-funded projects are selected on their ability to target urgent health needs affecting a large segment of the state's residents with results that can be measured. Projects often involve public-private partnerships, which maximize the effectiveness of programs and enable efforts to be tailored to meet local needs.
TMAF is proud to have granted more than $8.3 million to award-winning, physician-driven initiatives.
TMAF offers a variety of funding opportunities to members of the TMA and TMAA "Family of Medicine" for programs that address the needs in their communities. Learn more about grant and award opportunities offered throughout the year (including deadlines) and see if you qualify to apply.
