The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the deadline for applications for the USDA’s Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program is Friday, July 8. A veterinarian may submit only one application per cycle.

The Texas Animal Health Commission facilitated a Texas stakeholder working group to identify areas in need of rural vet practitioners. Eight multi-county areas in Texas have been designated as Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program shortage situations. To view the designated Texas shortage situation counties, visit http://www.csrees.usda.gov/nea/animals/in_focus/vmlrp_11/vmlrp_shortage_situation_texas.html.

Authorized by the National Veterinary Medical Services Act, the program helps qualified veterinarians offset a significant portion of debt they incurred while pursuing their veterinary medicine degrees in return for their service in designated high-priority veterinary shortage situations for an allotted period of time. If a qualified veterinarian commits to at least three years in providing veterinary services in a designated veterinary shortage area, USDA’s National Institute of Food & Agriculture may repay up to $25,000 of their student loan debt per year.

For more information, e-mail vmlrp@nifa.usda.gov.

While the Texas Animal Health Commission does not administer this program, comments or questions related to the shortage areas may be directed to comments@tahc.state.tx.us.
