NHSC Loan Repayment Program

Behavioral health professionals who are battling our country's opioid and substance abuse crisis too often are doing so while facing a mountain of student loan debt. But there is a new program that can help!

United We Heal wants you to be aware of the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program (SUD Workforce LRP). It offers student loan repayment awards of up to $75,000 to in exchange for three years of service at an NHSC approved site providing SUD services. These sites are located around the country so you may already be serving in one!

The deadline to apply is February 21, but since the application takes time we want you to get started ASAP! We continue to make progress on fully funding the SUPPORT Act to support more behavioral health professionals, but please check to see if you qualify for this program as well.

For questions, call 1-800-221-9393 (TTY: 1-877-897-9910) Monday through Friday (except federal holidays) 8:00 am to 8:00 pm ET.
