Workplace Violence Grant Program

The Texas Center for Nursing Workforce Studies administers a grant program to fund innovative approaches for reducing verbal and physical violence against nurses in hospitals, freestanding emergency medical care facilities, nursing facilities, and home health agencies.

The grant is the result of House Bill 280 (H.B. 280), 85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017, added Section 105.011. The legislation requires grant recipients to submit periodic reports describing the outcome of the activities funded through the grant. Award funding for this program will be contingent upon funds being made available by the Texas Board of Nursing through an increase of nurse licensure fees.
