State Loan Repayment Program

The State Loan Repayment Program is part of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr) overall strategy to improve access to underserved communities. NHSC grants matching funds directly to States to operate their own loan repayment programs. Primary care health professionals who are providing full-time clinical services in a public or non-profit facility located in a federally designated Health Professional Shortage Area are eligible for this program. Eligibility requirements and benefits vary from State to State. For specific information, please contact the States directly.

These programs expire 8/30/2010.
