This bill establishes programs for the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to award grants supporting midwifery programs at higher education institutions and nursing schools.

The HRSA may prioritize funding institutions that focus on increasing the number of midwife professionals from underrepresented groups and that promote practicing in areas with limited access to professional health care.
