Looking for post-baccs with linkages to affordable medical schools (or atleast med schools that are not outrageously expensive for out-of-state students.) Any ideas? thanks :D

The keyword is out-of-state. That implies you will be applying to a private school or a public school that accepts out-of-state applicants. Both of which are expensive regardless. So i'm unsure what you are asking in terms of "outrageously expensive for out-of-state students". You'll probably be looking at $40-55k at these schools.

On top of that, post-baccs with linkage programs may also be expensive. Off the top of my head, Scripps in Southern California, and Mills College in Northern California have linkage programs to George Washington and Tulane respectively. Scripps costs about $24-27k, however i'm not sure how much Mills is. It must be noted that the Scripps program is intended for those that were not pre-meds, and thus if you have taken the MCAT already, you are disqualified from applying. But yea, the term outrageously expensive goes out the window if you are talking about doing an official post-bacc program, and applying as an out-of-state resident. :)

Are you looking for a 1-year post-bacc. program or longer? B/c 1-year programs range in the $20,000s.

Well, postbacs like applicants they can place into med school, and med school may select preferentially for URMs, so one goes with the other.

I recall seeing quite a few post-bachs specifically directed at URMs. OHSU has one I believe. On allo forum, someone mentioned one by Colorado. I think quite a few med schools has similar programs that's not well known.
