The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food & Agriculture (NIFA) published a Federal Register notice Oct. 22, "Solicitation of Veterinary Shortage Situation Nominations for the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP)," that solicits nominations of veterinary service shortage situations for VMLRP for fiscal 2019, as authorized under the National Veterinary Medical Services Act.
NIFA said this notice initiates the nomination period and prescribes the procedures and criteria to be used by eligible nominating officials (state, insular area, the District of Columbia and federal lands) to nominate veterinary shortage situations. Each year, all eligible nominating officials may submit nominations, up to the maximum indicated for each entity in this notice. NIFA is conducting this solicitation of veterinary shortage situation nominations under an approved information collection (OMB Control Number 0524-0050).
Shortage situation nominations must be submitted not later than 30 days after the publication of the notice, which, in this case, is Nov. 21, 2018.
