Connecticut State Loan
Repayment Program (CSLRP)
Connecticut State Loan Repayment Program (CSLRP) was created in
1990 under the authority of the Federal Public Health Service
Act, Section 338B, and the Connecticut General Statutes, Section
19a-7d. It was designed to assist and address the growing problem
of access to health care by focusing on recruitment and retention
of primary health care professionals in community health centers
that are federally designated as Medically Underserved and as
a Health Professional Shortage Area. This program represents a
joint state and federal effort to improve access to essential
preventive and primary care services for the poor, uninsured,
minorities and other special populations.
