State Loan Repayment Program Application Period Begins

Applications for the 2023 Michigan State Loan Repayment Program (MSLRP) will be accepted from March 6-31 through the File Transfer Application System. Providers are strongly encouraged to create an account in the system before starting the application period.

The MSLRP assists employers in the recruitment and retention of medical, dental and mental health primary care providers who continue to demonstrate their commitment to building long-term primary care practices in underserved communities designated as Health Professional Shortage Areas. Those selected will receive up to $300,000 in tax-free funds to repay their educational debt over a period of up to ten years of participation. Priority will be given to applications from:

  • Inpatient pediatric psychiatrists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
  • Genesee County applicants.
  • Obstetric service providers working in northern Michigan.

The review process has been updated for this application period. Providers and employers are strongly encouraged to read more about the review process in the Selection Criteria, Application Review and Final Phase Process section of the MSLRP website. For more information, contact Brittany Brookshire at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
