Pennsylvania Loan Repayment Recipients Impacted by Pandemic Won’t Be Penalized

If you or a staff member is currently a participant in the Pennsylvania Primary Care Loan Repayment Program, you will not be penalized for reduced hours or temporary loss of hours due to your facility’s response to COVID-19. The Pennsylvania Department of Health has confirmed that under provisions in Paragraph 27 (Default and Termination), sub-paragraph C, of the Standard General Terms and Conditions, grant agreements will not be terminated in the event that grantees cannot perform duties outlined in the grant agreements due to COVID-19 response and mitigation efforts. If loan repayment grantees are unable to perform the duties outlined in a grant agreement due to COVID-19, the grantees should contact the program administrator. Contact Judd Mellinger-Blouch, Director of the Pennsylvania Primary Care Career Center, with questions.
