This act will create two new grant programs. The first is a competitive grant program for schools educating the health workforce to create training programs that address implicit bias in the health care system, particularly in obstetrics and gynecology. The second grant program establishes funding for a demonstration project to assist up to 10 states with implementing and maintaining pregnancy medical home programs. These programs aim to reduce maternal death and racial health disparities by incentivizing maternal health care providers to deliver health care services to pregnant individuals and new mothers.
