The Iowa Geriatric Education Center was supported through the Geriatric Education Center (GEC) funding initiative of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for 15 consecutive years. In 2015, HRSA folded the GEC mechanism into their newly developed Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program or GWEP funding that now supports the IGEC.  Although GWEP funding is not research focused, patient centered outcomes associated with workforce training are required. In turn, the GWEP funding supports research collaborations on a variety of topics. A key example is the Improving Antipsychotic Appropriateness in Dementia Patients, or IA-ADAPT project that was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (R18 HS19355-0) and hosted at the IGEC website
