42 CFR 68c.8 - What does the CIR-LRP provide to participants?
(a) Loan repayments. Upon receipt of an individual's written commitment to serve a minimum initial period of two years of obligated service in accordance with this part, the Secretary may pay up to $35,000 per year of a participant's repayable debt for each year the individual serves.
(b) Under paragraph (a) of this section, the Secretary will make payments in the discharge of debt to the extent appropriated funds are available for that purpose. When a shortage of funds exists, participants may be funded partially, as determined by the Secretary. However, once a CIR-LRP contract has been signed by both parties, the Secretary will obligate such funds as necessary to ensure that sufficient funds will be available to pay benefits for the duration of the period of obligated service unless otherwise specified by mutual written agreement between the Secretary and the applicant. Benefits will be paid on a quarterly basis after each service period unless otherwise specified by mutual written agreement between the Secretary and the applicant.
