Kansas State Loan Repayment Program

The purpose of the Kansas State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) is to recruit and retain medical, nursing, dental and behavioral/mental health care professionals at eligible practice sites in federally designated Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) in the appropriate discipline of the health care professional’s licensure (medical, dental or mental health). 

The SLRP offers eligible health care professionals an opportunity to receive assistance with the repayment of qualifying educational loans in exchange for a minimum two-year service commitment at an eligible practice site. The SLRP funds are to be used as an annual one-time lump sum payment toward eligible student loans. The SLRP participant is responsible for any regularly scheduled loan repayments throughout the contract year.
