The SLRP was congressionally authorized in 1987 under the U.S. Public Health Services Act, 42 U.S.C. 254q1. Click here to view
- SLRP increases the number of primary care physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, and mental health providers practicing in defined Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).
- SLRP authorizes repayment of educational loans to health professionals, who in turn must commit to practice in medically underserved areas in public or non-profit entities for a minimum of two years and maximum of four years.
The SLRP 2014 Application Cycle is now closed.
- Apply through the online electronic CalREACH system for both the provider and site applications.
- Apply early so that you will have time to complete the application. Do not wait to the last minute to apply as you may not be able to submit your application once the deadline cutoff date has passed.
