Kansas State Loan Repayment Program

Loan Repayment Assists in Recruitment & Retention for Health Care Professionals in Kansas

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 (HPSAs). 

Eligible health care professionals have the 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.
