Designated Rural Areas for Loan Forgiveness Programs in Minnesota
Designated rural area for the Loan Forgiveness Programs refers to “an area defined as a small rural area or isolated rural area according to the four category classifications of the Rural Urban Commuting Area system developed for the United States Health Resources and Services Administration.”
To determine if a facility is eligible:
- Look up a facility by zip code, the 4-category classification must be a 3 (small rural) or a 4 (isolated rural) (Excel 26KB)
- Look up by city. All cities on this list are eligible. If your city is not on this list, it is not eligible (Excel 19KB).
More information on Rural Urban Community Area systems is on the ORHPC Workforce site.
