Pursuant to a program included in H.R. 6, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) will launch the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program (SUD Workforce LRP). The program will support the recruitment and retention of health professionals needed in underserved areas to expand access to SUD treatment and prevent overdose deaths.
Eligible clinicians may receive up to $75,000 in student loan repayment in exchange for a three-year commitment to provide SUD treatment services at NHSC-approved sites. HRSA will begin accepting applications later this year.
