Up to $100,000 in Loan Repayment for Rural Substance Use Disorder Clinicians

Thursday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. ET

A new National Health Service Corps (NHSC) program, the Rural Community Loan Repayment Program, will award up to $100,000 in student loan repayment to primary care and behavioral health clinicians providing substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in rural communities nationwide. In exchange, participants commit to serve for three years at rural health care sites.

Key Program Highlights

  • Priority Funding: Applicants employed at an NHSC-approved site that is also participating in the Rural Community Opioid Response Program (RCORP), an initiative of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, will be given priority.
  • Expanded Disciplines: Nurse anesthetists, pharmacists, registered nurses, and SUD counselors are eligible.
  • Flexibility: Applicants can apply under either the mental health or primary care Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) score of their site – whichever is higher.
  • Support for all treatment team members: Providers offering general SUD services to medication assisted treatment are eligible to apply.
