Michigan mental health providers eligible for up to $300K in student debt relief

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services will offer up to $300,000 in student debt relief to eligible mental healthcare providers. 

The funding will be disbursed through the department's MI Kids Now Loan Repayment Program over a 10-year period, according to a March 28 news release from the agency. Providers working with adults and children are eligible for funds, but those working with children will be prioritized. 

To receive repayment, applicants must provide in-person outpatient behavioral health services through eligible nonprofit sites, such as public school systems and community health organizations. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, case managers and certified behavioral analysts are the professions eligible to apply. 

The application cycle will be from June 12 to 23, the release said.
