National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Programs

On March 8, the National Institutes of Health issued a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding Health Loan Repayment programs. The NIH proposes to update existing regulation to consolidate into the Intramural Loan Repayment Program (for NIH researchers) and the Extramural Loan Repayment Program (for non-NIH researchers). The rule also proposes increasing the annual loan repayment amount from a maximum of $35,000 to a maximum of $50,000. Comments must be received on or before May 9, 2022.
