Primary Care Clinic Expansion Grant

City of Kingston Primary Care Clinic Expansion Grant

Grant Application Period: May 7, 2024 – May 21, 2024

While not the responsibility of municipal government, the City of Kingston is committed to promoting the health, safety, and wellbeing of its residents by investing in initiatives that improve primary care access in our community. The Primary Care Clinic Expansion Grant funded by the municipality offers a one-time, financial grant of up to $100,000 to primary care clinics that demonstrate a comprehensive plan to expand patient rosters and enhance care accessibility through the use of technology, expanded administrative support capacity to address the burden of paperwork, and/or the addition of other allied professionals to the clinic.

The City of Kingston remains dedicated to ensuring accessible primary care for all residents and eagerly anticipates supporting local clinics as they expand their rosters and serve more patients.
