State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP): The purpose of this program is to make grants to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories to assist them in operating their own state educational loan repayment programs for primary care providers working in HPSAs within their state.  SLRP supports loan repayment awards to health care providers in exchange for service in underserved communities. SLRP recipients are afforded the flexibility to select the disciplines and HPSA sites that meet their unique workforce needs.  To that end, HRSA is encouraging SLRP applicants to consider how SLRP funds might be used to support the clinical priorities of addressing opioid abuse and mental health conditions.  Please note, this NOFO expands the disciplines supported by SLRP to include Masters-level, licensed alcohol and substance abuse counselors.
