Arizona Loan Repayment Program
PCPLRP vs. RPPCPLRP
The Primary Care Provider Loan Repayment Program (PCPLRP) and the Rural Private Primary Care Provider Loan Repayment Program (RPPCPLRP) follow the same program guidelines. The difference between PCPLRP and RPPCPLRP is in the service site eligibility requirements based on the type and location of the service site.
The PCPLRP qualifies a service site that is public or private, non-profit located in a federally designated Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA). The RPPCPLRP qualifies a private practice service site located in a rural area as defined in ARS § 36- 2171 within an Arizona Medically Underserved Area (AzMUA).
All other service site eligibility requirements must be met in order to participate in either of these programs.
