Historically, the KSLRP competitively awards 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.
