Loan Repayment Incentives

North Carolina has a severe shortage of primary health care providers, particularly in the state’s rural areas. We have pioneered innovative approaches for placing health professionals in our underserved communities, including practice incentives for primary care providers. In order for you to qualify for Loan Repayment Incentives, both you and the shortage site must apply and be approved by the National Health Service Corps (NHSC).
If you are a health care professional who is interested in providing health care to the state’s underserved rural communities, look at the practice incentives listed below:


  • $50,000 at sites with HPSA score of 14+
  • $30,000 at sites with HPSA score of 0-13 for 2-year commitment (with extension opportunity)

For more information, visit the National Health Service Corps (NHSC).
