State Employee Student Loan Repayment Plan
The SmartWork Student Loan Repayment Plan (SLRP) is a program that financially assists eligible State employees with one of their biggest financial burdens – repaying their student loan debt. This program was implemented in June 2018 when Governor Hogan issued an Executive Order directing the establishment of the SLRP to offer assistance to employees in certain hard-to-hire and hard-to-retain job classifications within State government.
Effective June 30, 2021, SLRP has been closed to new applicants.
