Primary Care Service Corps (PCSC) Round 3
Description:

The New York State Department of Health (Department) issues this Funding Opportunity under the Primary Care Service Corps (PCSC) Loan Repayment Program, which arose out of the workforce recommendations of the states Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) and is modeled after the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). As set forth in Public Health Law (PHL) 923 and 924, PCSC is a service-obligated loan repayment program that is designed to increase the supply of certain clinical practitioners in underserved areas.

Practitioners eligible to apply under the program are dentists, dental hygienists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, midwives, clinical psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed mental health counselors who commit to practice in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) in New York State. In addition, practitioners must demonstrate that they are or will be working in primary care or behavioral health and in an outpatient or other eligible setting as defined further herein.

While eligibility for PCSC participation requires that the practitioner work at a HPSA site (or State Correctional Facility), applications will be scored higher if the site has a higher HPSA score. Further, applications will be scored higher if applicants will practice in sites that foster a diverse work environment and effectively accommodate patients of diverse ethnicities, individuals with disabilities, and other underserved populations.


Up to $1 million was appropriated in the 2017-18 New York State budget to support existing contracts and new awards under the program. Practitioners who receive new awards pursuant to this Funding Opportunity will receive up to $60,000 in loan repayment funding, not to exceed the amount of the individuals qualifying educational debt, in return for a two-year commitment to practice in a primary care, dental, or mental health HPSA. Subject to continued available funding, the practitioners contract may be extended for three additional renewal periods of one year each.
