Utah’s Behavioral Health Workforce Reinvestment Initiative:

The Behavioral Health Workforce Reinvestment Initiative and Health Care Workforce Loan Repayment Programs will combine to become a three-year program serving multiple types of health providers. For the FY 2023, the award amounts will be increased and the practicing sites must agree to a 20 % match. The combining of these programs will be more efficient for the applicants and our office. Please refer to the Health Care Workforce Financial Assistance Program for further updates.

The changes will take effect July 01, 2022.

The application cycle for providers and sites will open April 25, 2022 – May 23, 2022. Applications will be available at the Health Care Workforce Financial Assistance Program page.
