The Rural Health Professionals Program (RHPP)

The Rural Health Professionals Program (RHPP) is an Australian Government-funded initiative designed to attract and retain nursing and allied health professionals in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia.

The aim of the program is to increase the rural and remote allied health and nursing workforce and improve retention rates. Health Workforce Queensland is responsible for delivering this program in Queensland.

The program provides financial assistance for a limited number of eligible new recruits to rural communities. Funding can be allocated to assist eligible candidates with relocation costs, rental assistance for up to three months and ongoing professional development.
