CHC Provider Loan Repayment Program
Awards are dependent on the availability of funds.
The Community Health Center Primary Care Provider Loan Repayment Program is managed by the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers and is funded by donations from Bank of America, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Neighborhood Health Plan, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts and Partners HealthCare. The program offers medical and nursing school loan repayment to primary care physicians and nurse practitioners who make a two year commitment to practice at one of the state's 50 community health center organizations.
While the bulk of program funding is for physicians and nurse practitioners seeking positions at health centers, there are some resources available for current providers. See below for more details for:
This initiative is intended to support the expansion of primary care capacity at all Massachusetts community health centers. It is anticipated that with the ease in educational debt, more physicians will choose primary care practice and commit to working at community health centers to provide critical health care services to medically underserved and uninsured residents. Application forms will be available shortly to download.
The initiative is also open to primary care nurse practitioners who have completed their training and have been newly hired to work in a Massachusetts community health center, with a hire date within one year of the application due date. Application forms will be available shortly to download.
