Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) - (ARRA) - #93.406

Not Applicable.




Funding preferences are used to determine the sequential order in which qualified applicants are considered for an award. As provided in section 846(e) of the PHS Act, as amended, a funding preference will be given to qualified applicants with greatest financial need, which the NELRP defines as those qualified applicants whose total qualifying educational loans are 40% or greater than their gross salary. In addition, a funding preference is given to RNs working in the types of health care facilities that have the most severe nursing shortage. Applicants are grouped into one of the preference levels described in the Applicant Information Bulletin based on their qualifying nursing education debt to gross annual salary ratio and place of employment. Awards are made to applicants starting with the first preference category by decreasing qualifying nursing education debt to salary ratio until funds are expended. All qualified applications will be forwarded to an objective review committee. Based on the advice of the objective review committee, the HRSA program official with delegated authority is responsible for final selection and funding decisions. Notification is made in writing by a Notice of Award.
