The LRP's ranking system gives high site scores to those sites that are most in need of specific health professions. If you apply for a site with a score of
70 or above, you will be considered for an award beginning in January (or as soon as funding becomes available). If the site you choose has a score of less than 70,
your application will not be considered until March. Awards are given to the applications that match the highest priorities until funds are no longer available.
How to Use the Site Score List
LRP Site Score Lists are sorted by site score (100 – 0) and by city and state. When you open the Site Score List for your health profession discipline, you will see
column headers at the top entitled Facility, City, State, Area, Score and I/T/U (Indian Health Service/Tribal/Urban). I/T/U indicates that the program is managed by the
federal government through IHS, by a Tribal organization or by an Urban Indian organization.
Please note that facilities will have different scores depending on the health profession discipline most needed at that location. For instance, a site may have a
score of 50 for dentists, but 100 for pharmacists.
