Grant Distribution Reports
The Minnesota Department of Health released $57.1 million from the MERC grant program to sponsoring institutions in April 2015. Statute allows the sponsoring institutions 60 days to forward funding to the eligible 2012 clinical training facilities included in the MERC grant application.
Funding for the MERC program comes from two sources: (1) Minnesota´s cigarette tax (tobacco funding), which includes federal Medicaid matching funds; and (2) Prepaid Medical Assistance Program carve out (PMAP funding).
For more background on the formulas used, review the 2014 Minnesota Statutes section 62J.692.
