Proposed Project: The National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program (OMB No. 0915-0127)—Extension
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) was established to assure an adequate supply of trained primary care health care professionals to provide services in the neediest Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) of the United States. Under this program, the Department of Health and Human Services agrees to repay the educational loans of the primary care health professionals. In return, the health professionals agree to serve for a specified period of time in a federally-designated HPSA approved by the Secretary for LRP participants.

The LRP forms include the following: The NHSC LRP Application; the Loan Information and Verification form; the Community Site Information form; the Applicant Checklist; the Payment Information form; and the Authorization to Release Information form.
