Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit entities, including organizations, governments, housing authorities, tribes, IHEs, and school districts, to create a fellowship program for leadership and health equity training. Required registrations may take as long as one month to complete. The purpose of the program is to provide training to early-career individuals to reduce health disparities and improve the health of racial and ethnic minorities and other disadvantaged populations.
OMH is dedicated to improving the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that will help eliminate health disparities. This aligns with the OASH priority on the elimination of health disparities and HHS Strategic Plan Objective to strengthen and expand the healthcare workforce to meet America’s diverse needs.

The Minority Leaders Development Program aims to enhance skills and competencies necessary for federal leadership service among participants through:
The Minority Leaders Development Program will fill a gap in federal fellowship opportunities for individuals interested in working at HHS to advance health equity and address the social determinants of health through health policies, programs and practices. In addition, the Minority Leaders Development Program is expected to support efforts to promote diversity, including racial and ethnic minorities, in senior positions within HHS agencies by providing professional development and career pathway opportunities.
The Program will include a one-year federal fellowship for graduate-level students and recent graduates who have completed, within the previous two years, their graduate degree.
