Washington State Loan Repayment

The current contract is a maximum of $70,000 (or the amount of eligible loan debt - whichever is less) for a minimum two year commitment. For the state HPLR program the maximum amount is $75,000 for a minimum three year contract (Eastern and Western State Hospitals only).
