In recent years, the growth of medical schools has outpaced the growth of residency position. To make sure they have enough physicians to patient care demands, some states are recognizing the need to invest in residency programs.

Georgia allocated $14 million to match funds hospitals set aside to start residency programs. Texas offered hospitals without residency programs $150,000 planning grants to launch new programs and an additional $250,000 to develop them. Hospitals with existing programs could also apply for $65,000 grants to add more residency slots.
