ND Awarded Loan Repayment from Office of Rural Health!
Beth Martin | Executive Director
Oregon's first ND has been awarded loan repayment from the Office of Rural Health through the Oregon Health Authority. The award was given in the first round of the Health Care Provide Incentive Program, which awards health providers serving rural and underserved communities in Oregon. Loans are being awarded 4 times a year!
In exchange for service at a qualified practice site, participants receive funds to repay qualifying graduate-level, (or for expanded practice dental hygienists, undergraduate-level) loan debt. Awards are calculated based on the balance owed on qualifying loans upon program entry.
Full time service providers must commit to a 3 year minimum service obligation in exchange for a tax free award of 50% of their qualifying educational loan debt balance, up to $35,000 per obligation year.
Part time service providers must commit to a 3 year minimum service obligation in exchange for a tax free award of 25% of their qualifying educational loan debt balance, up to $25,000 per obligation year.
