Receive award preference for two NHSC loan repayment programs

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is committed to expanding and improving access to quality opioid use disorder and substance use disorder treatment in rural and underserved communities nationwide.

To support clinicians on the front lines of the opioid epidemic, HRSA recently launched the National Health Service Corps Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program (SUD Workforce LRP) and the Rural Community Loan Repayment Program. The SUD Workforce LRP provides up to $75,000, and the Rural Community LRP provides up to $100,000 in student loan repayment for eligible clinicians.

Applicants who have DATA 2000 waivers will get preference. We encourage clinicians who are interested in applying for next year’s SUD Workforce LRP or Rural Community LRP to get a DATA 2000 waiver now to receive award preference with both LRPs. The new application cycle will open in early 2023.

How to get a waiver

  1. Take the free medications for opioid use disorder MOUD training for your specific discipline.
  2. Request the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) waivers to treat opioid dependency with approved buprenorphine products.
