The department may establish a program to award grants to initiate, expand, maintain, and improve voluntary perinatal health care systems.

the availability of personnel and training programs;


the availability of other funding sources;


the assurance of providing quality services;


the need for emergency transportation of perinatal patients and the extent to which the system meets the identified needs; and


the stage of development of a perinatal health care system.


The department may approve grants according to rules adopted by the executive commissioner. A grant awarded under this section is governed by Chapter 783 (Uniform Grant and Contract Management), Government Code, and rules adopted under that chapter.
