Grants to USA institutions of higher education to improve health services for young adults and adolescents. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to support health care delivery and equity for young people aged 10-25.

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH) Program. The purpose of this program is to improve the quality of care and equitable access to appropriate health services for adolescents and young adults (AYA) by preparing leaders in AYA health through interdisciplinary training at the graduate and postgraduate levels. This is accomplished through five (5) overarching objectives to:

  1. Prepare diverse AYA health professionals, through didactic, experiential, and research-based interdisciplinary education and training in core health disciplines of medicine, nursing, nutrition, psychology, and social work.
  2. Expand diversity, equity, and inclusion related to race, ethnicity, geography, and special populations within all training program components, including but not limited to trainee/faculty recruitment, staffing plan, curricula, clinical and experiential activities, and research foci to address health disparities and increase health equity for AYA.
  3. Develop curricula, training activities, and investigative research to produce evidence-based products and practices in primary care, AYA specialty service, and public health.
  4. Improve access to behavioral, emotional, mental, developmental, and psychosocial health services, well-being, and support for AYA.
  5. Develop, expand, and disseminate population-based strategies and effective practices through collaboration and coordination of telehealth, tele-education/distance learning, technical assistance (TA), and continuing education (CE).
