About the Patient Care Trust Fund

Since 1981, CIR’s  Patient Care Trust Fund (PCTF) has provided countless residents and fellows at NYC Health + Hospitals (H + H) with exclusive grants to help reduce health disparities and advance quality care for all New Yorkers. During the last grant cycle alone, PCTF awarded $800,000 in funding for resident-led projects at every H + H facility, including:

  • +$630,000 for cutting-edge medical equipment and training resources to modernize public health infrastructure and expand access to high-quality, responsive care.
  • +$115,000 to launch innovative research, quality improvement, and community-based initiatives that confront the multiple drivers of community health and resident wellbeing.

Want to learn how you/your department can apply for a PCTF equipment, research, or community grant this year? Join one of our upcoming virtual information sessions in October. Don’t miss out on your chance to secure vital resources for your patients, hospitals, and communities!

The first round of PCTF applications will go live here on October 7, 2022.
