The purpose of the County Medical Services Program (CMSP) Allied Healthcare Loan Repayment Program (AHLRP) is to increase the number of appropriately trained allied healthcare professionals in California. Furthermore, it empowers and encourages those professionals to provide direct patient care in a CMSP-designated county at any number of CMSP-contracted provider sites in underserved areas and communities throughout California.
Eligible applicants may receive loan repayments of up to $16,000 in exchange for a 12-month service obligation practicing and providing direct patient care at one of the CMSP-contracted provider sites in any of the 35 CMSP-designated counties.
AHLRP applicants must work in a CMSP-designated county and at one of the CMSP-contracted provider sites.
The 35 CMSP-designated counties include:
Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Del Norte, El Dorado, Glenn, Humboldt, Imperial, Inyo, Kings, Lake, Lassen, Madera, Marin, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Mono, Napa, Nevada, Plumas, San Benito, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne, Yolo, and Yuba.
Funding is provided by the County Medical Services Program.
Upon completing the 12-month service obligation, Grantees will receive their full award amount.
