SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose In January 2003, the National Veterinary Medical Service Act VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Apr 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 (NVMSA) was passed into law adding section 1415A to the National Agricultural Research, Extension, and Teaching Policy Act of 1997 (NARETPA). This law established a new Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (7 U.S.C. 3151a) authorizing the Secretary of Agriculture to carry out a program of entering into agreements with veterinarians under which they agree to provide veterinary services in veterinarian shortage situations. Section 7105 of FCEA amended section 1415A to revise the determination of veterinarian shortage situations to consider (1) geographical areas that the Secretary determines have a shortage of veterinarians; and (2) areas of veterinary practice that the Secretary determines have a shortage of veterinarians, such as food animal medicine, public health, epidemiology, and food safety. This section also added that priority should be given to agreements with veterinarians for the practice of food animal medicine in veterinarian shortage situations. NARETPA section 1415A requires the Secretary, when determining the amount of repayment for a year of service by a veterinarian to consider the ability of USDA to maximize the number of agreements from the amounts appropriated and to provide an incentive to serve in veterinary service shortage areas with the greatest need. This section also provides that loan repayments may consist of payments of the principal and interest on government and commercial loans received by the individual for the attendance of the individual at an accredited college of veterinary medicine resulting in a degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine or the equivalent. This program is not authorized to provide repayments for any government or commercial loans incurred during the pursuit of another degree, such as an associate or bachelor degree. Loans eligible for repayment include educational loans made for one or more of the following: Loans for tuition expenses; other reasonable educational expenses, including fees, books, and laboratory expenses, incurred by the individual; and reasonable living expenses as determined by the Secretary. In addition, the Secretary is directed to make such additional payments to participants as the Secretary determines appropriate for the purpose of providing reimbursements to participants for individual tax liability resulting from participation in this program. Finally, this section requires USDA to promulgate regulations within 270 days of the enactment of FCEA (i.e., June 18, PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22209 2008). The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out this program to NIFA. The final rule was published in the Federal Register on April 19, 2010 [75 FR 20239–20248] allowing eligible veterinarians to competitively apply for and receive a VMLRP award. From FY 2010 through FY 2015, NIFA received 996 applications from which 340 VMLRP awards were offered. Additional information by funding year can be found at http://nifa.usda.gov/ vmlrp-reports-and-statistics. On December 18, 2015, the President signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. L. 114– 113), which appropriated $5,000,000 for the VMLRP. Funding for future years will be based on annual appropriations and balances, if any, remaining from prior years. The eligibility criteria for applicants and the application forms and associated instructions needed to apply for a VMLRP award can be viewed and downloaded from the VMLRP Web site at: http://nifa.usda.gov/vmlrpapplicants.
