DANY Physician Loan Repayment and Physician Practice Support Program

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 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. OASAS Programs are eligible to participate in this procurement.

Pursuant to PHL § 2807-m, DANY funds can be awarded to: (1) a physician to preay 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) hosted an applicant webinar for this funding opportunity on April 25, 2018. A link to the recording is posted on the website at:

State and Municipalities (SAM) Facilities Grant program

  • $475 million was appropriated for SAM funding for FY2019, and $385 million of that funding includes language to expand the eligibility criteria to include nonprofits.
  • The grants are awarded by the Executive and Legislative members of the Senate and Assembly, and administered through DASNY.
  • SAM funding is now available and we encourage you to meet with your local representatives to request funding for your organization.
  • The allowable uses of funding are for capital work or purpose as described in Section 67-a of the State Finance law, which includes construction and improvement of buildings owned by the applicant as well as the acquisition of capital facilities.
  • If you are in a leased space, there may be an opportunity to apply for a capital improvement project if the owner of the building is also eligible for SAM; public libraries, public schools, and public housing authorities are current examples of SAM eligible entities.
  • The SAM awards are processed through DASNY, and awardees should familiarize themselves with the requirements for capital funding which can include M/WBE requirements, proof of deed to the property, and bid information.
  • DASNY does not have any requirements on the size of the project – either minimum or maximum – but the legislature and executive may impose their own award requirements.
