The Michigan State Loan Repayment Program

The Michigan State Loan Repayment Program (MSLRP) provides loan repayment assistance to medical, dental, and mental healthcare providers who enter into MSLRP service obligations. These service obligations require participants to provide full-time primary health care services to ambulatory populations at eligible, not-for-profit practice sites located in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) for a period of two years.

Obstetric service providers remain the program's top priority and will receive preference in the selection process. This includes all obstetric service providers working at practice sites in, or north of, Mason, Lake, Osecola, Clare, Gladin, and Arenac counties. Annual agreement limits for these providers will remain at $35,000. To be considered a top priority for this application period, graduating students and obstetric service providers not yet working in this area must enter into employment agreements to begin work no later than October 1, 2014.

Application forms are available on the MSLRP Website at: www.michigan.gov/mslrp under ‘SLRP Application Forms’. Providers must complete Provider Application Part A and Part B, and employers must complete the Practice Site Application and Declaration of Intent. All three application forms must be submitted together in a single envelope and postmarked by April 30, 2014. Loan repayment agreements for successful applicants will begin on October 1, 2014, and continue through September 30, 2016.
