Attention 2016-17 KSLRP Applicants:
We have received a record number of applicants for this funding cycle, making the awards proces the most competetive one to date. Due to the volume of applicants, it is taking longer for both our initital review and the final review and recommendations from the advisory committee. We anticipate the notification of all applicants by the last week of December.
Applications for the 2016-17 KSLRP funding cycle will be accepted September 1, 2016 through 5 pm EST October 3, 2016.
For the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the KSLRP will competitively award a total of up to $300,000 to be allocated to approximately thirteen (13) participants who agree to provide Primary Care services to rural and/or underserved populations located in a Kentucky Health Professions Shortage Area* appropriate for their profession. The Kentucky State Loan Repayment Program (KSLRP) is a 50/50 matching loan repayment program funded through the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) and administered by the Kentucky Office of Rural Health. The program requires a two-year commitment by the provider to practice at an eligible site, with an equal committment by the employer.
Compete submission guidelines can be found in the RFA. All submissions must be typed, and only electronic submissions will be accepted. This is a competitive funding award, and application does not imply acceptance into the program.
