Effective December 22, 2023, the Office of Health Equity will no longer be using to process workforce incentive applications. All application cycles will remain closed until January 12, 2024, as OHE’s transitions to another application repository tool.

As a result, the Virginia State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) application cycle has been deferred to January 12, 2024, and is expected to terminate on March 31, 2024. The application cycle for the Behavioral Health Loan Repayment Program (BHLRP) will be extended through April 30, 2024.

Please be advised that during this transition, application accounts and data will be unavailable on OHE is committed to quality improvement and providing the best customer service to Virginia’s current and future health workforce. This transition is a necessary step in our efforts to provide a more efficient, modern incentive application web platform in 2024. Your patience and understanding are most appreciated. Please continue to visit this website for program updates, coordinator contact information and future application information.

The 2021 General Assembly established a $500,000 Nursing Preceptor Incentive Program (NPIP) to provide financial incentives for practitioners who serve as otherwise uncompensated preceptors for APRN students to help increase access to care, address the primary care shortage, handle mental health crises, and manage chronic diseases. All of these factors are crucial in improving the health and wellness of all Virginians. For the fiscal year 2024, the General Assembly has approved a budge allocation of $3.5 million.
