New Hampshire State Loan Repayment Program
Currently, the New Hampshire State Loan Repayment Program does not have funds to issue more contracts. Applicants are encouraged to continue applying. Applications will be added to a waiting list in the order they are received.
New Hampshire State Loan Repayment Program offers loan repayment assistance to healthcare professionals who agree to work in medically underserved areas of New Hampshire.
Applicants must agree to a service contract of 3 years full-time, or 2 years half-time.
Eligible professions include:
- Physicians (MD and DO)
- General practice dentists
- General surgeons at Critical Access Hospitals
- Primary care certified nurse practitioners
- Certified nurse midwives
- Primary care physician assistants
- Dental hygienists
- Licensed clinical social workers
- Psychiatric nurse specialists
- Licensed professional counselors
- Mental health counselors

Contracts are awarded first to applicants who have secured a one-to-one match for each state dollar in the contract. This match can come from the eligible practice site or the community in which the applicant will practice. If an applicant is unable to secure a match, his/her application will be considered in competition with all other unmatched applications received.
Award amounts vary by profession. A table of amounts by profession can be found in the program guidance.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed quarterly. A link to the application is available on the program website.
Completed forms should be mailed to:
