SmartWork Initiative

State Employee Student Loan Repayment Plan
Established by Executive Order 01.01.2018.17, the Maryland SmartWork Initiative is an innovative new tool to help State government recruit and retain employees in critical workforce shortage areas.

The key driver behind SmartWork is the Student Loan Repayment Plan, which offers eligible State employees working in targeted shortage areas (including public safety, psychology, nursing and IT) the opportunity to be reimbursed up to $20,000 over ten years of service for student loan repayments for themselves or an eligible child.​​​​​​​
