Excerpts from the RFP:

Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58822015 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified applicant to improve access to primary health care among underserved populations by providing educational loan repayment assistance to primary care medical, dental, and mental health practitioners. In exchange, practitioners must complete a minimum two year, full-time (or four year, half-time) service obligation at an eligible practice site(s) located in a federally designated health professional shortage area (HPSA). Iowa Code Chapter 135.107 establishes the Primary Care Provider Loan Repayment Program (LRP) under the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH).  Applicants that have not received an award in the past will be given priority under this RFP.
