The Caring Force Blog Student loan repayment program temporarily paused

Pause will allow for updating "certain program elements"

Last week, we announced the MA Repay: Human Services and Home Health Worker Loan Repayment Program had launched on Monday, January 29, 2024.

This afternoon, the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services have temporarily paused the program.

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services is pausing new registrations in order to update certain program elements. Once the changes have been made, the updates will be shared and the application will be re-opened. The state is working to reopen the application as soon as possible, and the Providers’ Council will continue to keep you apprised of any developments.

Please note: If you already submitted your application, you will not need to resubmit your application upon registration reopening. If you have already successfully registered and received a unique application link — but have not yet finished your application — you may complete and submit your application.

For more information on the program or the pause, you may visit: Please direct any questions to the MA Repay Program using the contact form available at this link:

Thank you for all who submitted questions to the Providers’ Council about program eligibility. Council members with further questions are encouraged to reach out to Bill Yelenak.
