Line Item: Workforce Financial Assistance
The purpose of the Utah Health Care Workforce Financial Assistance Program is to increase the number of: (1) health care professionals (physicians, physician assistants, nurses, dentists, mental health therapists, or other health care professionals) to provide primary health care services in medically underserved areas and (2) geriatric professionals (health care professionals, social worker, occupational therapist, pharmacist, physical therapist, or psychologist). This is done through educational loan repayment grants and scholarships in return for providing health care services for an obligated period of time. Funding for this program is designated as nonlapsing and is appropriated as a separate line item, in accordance with UCA 26-46-102(4).
The Workforce Financial Assistance Program is governed by Title 26, Chapter 46 of the Utah Code.
Ongoing funding ended after FY 2009. Existing appropriations have continued as nonlapsing funds for the continuing obligations. The nonlapsing funds will likely run out in FY 2013.
