National Health Service Corps Programs
May 6, 2021

The application cycle for three National Health Service Corps (NHSC) programs: the NHSC Loan Repayment Program (NHSC LRP), the NHSC Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program (NHSC SUD Workforce LRP) and the NHSC Rural Community Loan Repayment Program (NHSC Rural Community LRP) is now open. The application closes on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. This year, a historic $800 million increase in funding means we will be making more awards in a single year than ever before, and clinicians are encouraged to apply even if their organization’s health professional shortage area (HPSA) score has not been competitive for awards in the past. Additionally, the NHSC Loan Repayment Program will dedicate $15 million for awards to clinicians working at Indian Health Service facilities, Tribally-Operated 638 Health Programs, and Urban Indian Health Programs.
