The LRP assigns site scores to health facilities based on their needs for specific health profession disciplines. Loan repayment awards will be made only to those individuals serving at facilities which have a site score of 70 or above through March 1, if funding is available. Awards are given to the applications that match the highest priorities until all funding runs out.
How to Use the Site Scores List
LRP Site Score Lists are sorted by site score on a scale of 100 to 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). The abbreviation I/T/U indicates whether the facility is run by IHS, a Tribal organization or an Urban Indian program.
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.
Contact the LRP branch office if you do not see your health profession listed.
