Just Announced! The Zika Response and Preparedness Act (Pub. L. 114-223) provides $6 million for National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) awards to clinicians to serve in U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States (Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Territory of American Samoa, Territory of Guam, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Federated States of Micronesia) affected by the Zika virus or other vector-borne diseases.
Health care providers can receive up to $70,000 toward educational loan repayment in exchange for a three-year commitment at NHSC-approved sites in the Caribbean and the Pacific. The primary purpose of this funding is to expand the availability of high quality primary care and pediatric subspecialty clinicians to meet the health care needs of those living in U.S. Affiliated Island Areas affected by Zika virus and other vector-borne diseases.
Subject to the availability of funds, loan repayment awards will be made to:
(1) Retain current primary care, behavioral and mental health, allied health, and certain pediatric subspecialty clinicians practicing at NHSC-approved sites in Puerto Rico and other U.S. affiliated Islands.
(2) Extend the service of newly hired primary care, behavioral and mental health, allied health, and pediatric subspecialty clinicians at NHSC-approved sites in the affected areas; and
(3) Recruit to these affected areas new primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, certain pediatric subspecialists, and behavioral and mental health professionals who are completing their residency, fellowship, or other graduate training (as applicable) and who are ready to begin providing clinical care by July 18, 2017.
