USDA has taken a step toward implementing a plan to address veterinary shortages today, and the deepening divide expected in the future. USDA will repay the student loans of qualified veterinarians in return for them committing to practice in locations that are suffering the most from a lack of veterinarians

Studies have shown significant and growing shortages of food-animal veterinarians. Among the causes is the heavy cost of veterinary medical training.The four-year requirement can cost $130,000 to $140,000 on average. Congress established the VMLRP as a way to remedy the shortage.

In return for a three-year of veterinary services in a designated area, NIFA may repay up to $25,000 of student loan debt annually.
