Affordable Care Act - State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP): This announcement solicits applications for the State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP).  The purpose of this program is to make grants to States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories to assist them in operating their own state educational loan repayment programs for primary care providers working in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) within their State.  SLRP serves to support the HHS goal to strengthen the nation¿s human service workforce, and HRSA¿s goal to recruit and retain high quality health care professionals to practice in rural and urban settings designated as HPSAs.  Placing the right professionals in the right geographic areas increases access to primary health care for the nation¿s underserved populations.  HPSAs are categorized based on shortages in primary medical care, dental, and/or mental health care, and include designations for geographic location, population, and facility types. Within statutory and regulatory guidelines, SLRP grantees are afforded the flexibility to select the disciplines and HPSA sites that meet the needs of their State or U.S. Territory.
