Solicitation Profile
The New York State Doctors Across New York (DANY) initiative includes several programs collectively designed to help train and place physicians in underserved communities, in a variety of settings and specialties, to care for New York’s diverse population. The DANY Physician Loan Repayment (PLR) and Physician Practice Support (PPS) programs make funds available to help recruit physicians to and encourage them to remain in medically underserved areas of the state. Funding is provided in exchange for a physician’s commitment to work in an underserved area for a three-year period.

Pursuant to PHL § 2807-m, DANY funds can be awarded to: (1) a physician to repay qualified educational debt; (2) a physician to support the costs of establishing or joining medical practices; or (3) a health care facility to recruit or retain a physician by providing the physician with a sign-on bonus, funds to repay outstanding qualified educational debt, or enhanced compensation. In all cases, 100 percent of the funds ultimately must be distributed to the physician, or the physician's practice.

The New York State Department of Health (Department) will host an applicant webinar for this funding opportunity on February 13, 2020. Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend the webinar, which will provide technical assistance in completing the application. A link to the webinar will be posted on our website at: In addition, a recording of the webinar and PowerPoint slides will be posted to the Department’s website shortly after the live event.
