HOW HELPING TEACHERS AFFORD COMPREHENSIVE PATHWAYS INTO THE PROFESSION & ACHIEVE LOAN FORGIVENESS FREE WEBS... (799 hits)


For Immediate Release From USDE!



The U.S. Department of Education invites you to an upcoming webinar – “Helping Teachers Afford Comprehensive Pathways into the Profession and Achieve Loan Forgiveness” – on Wednesday, August 31st from 1:00 to 2:00 PM Eastern Time. The webinar will focus on opportunities to learn about significant improvements to the TEACH Grant program https://studentaid.gov/teach-grant-program... and the limited time Public Service Loan Forgiveness waiver https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/forgiv... to support program affordability and decrease student loan debt for educators.

The purpose of this webinar is to discuss how educators can benefit from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program, specifically the temporary waiver which provides time-limited changes to rules that allow borrowers to receive credit for past periods of repayment that would otherwise not qualify for PSLF. Borrowers are encouraged to act now since these changes are currently set to expires on Oct. 31, 2022. The webinar will also highlight recent improvements to the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program and best practices for implementation. These changes provide greater flexibilities and address previous challenges with successfully completing the program. Respecting and honoring teachers requires that we ensure educators receive financial support where eligible from these important federal programs.

The registration link is provided below.

Date and Time: Aug 31, 2022, 1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern Time

Register: https://TEACHANDPSLFWEBINAR.eventbrite.com

After registering, you will receive a confirmation message containing information about joining the webinar.

Please feel free to share with other teachers and we hope you can join us on August 31st!

All the best,

Office of Communications and Outreach

Over 175,000 borrowers are already living free of student loan debt thanks to the $10 billion in student loans already cancelled via the PSLF waiver program that President Joe Biden, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and our U.S. Department of Education coworkers are implementing.

This PSLF waiver is key to helping leaders, like Diana Caba of Hispanic Federation and Judge Sara Martinez of Dallas, get their loans cancelled.

Could you be next?

Under normal rules, the PSLF program forgives the balance of your Direct Loans once you make 120 qualifying payments while working in a public sector job. The time-limited PSLF program rule changes are making it easier for federal student loan borrowers working in public service careers to receive credit for past periods of repayment that normally don't qualify.

This is an all-hands on deck moment because the deadline to apply for the PSLF waiver is just two months away -- on October 31, 2022.

Here are some actions you can take:



1. Today:

Sign up NOW to participate in the upcoming PSLF Days of Action: https://us1.list-manage.com/survey?id=86c6...

August 31 for educators

September 7th for health care professionals and first responders

September 14th for non-profits

Learn more and start your PSLF application: https://studentaid.gov/pslf

Share this email with your network, especially those working in public service jobs.

2. Tomorrow, 8/31:

At 10 a.m. PT/ 1 p.m. ET join the "TEACH and PSLF Webinar." Our U.S. Department of Education colleagues will share how borrowers can take advantage of the PSLF waiver and they'll highlight recent improvements to the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program. These changes provide greater flexibilities and address previous challenges with successfully completing the program. RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teach-and-psl...


At 3 p.m. PT/ 6 p.m. ET join the “Navigating Student Loan Forgiveness Webinar” hosted by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute featuring our colleague Ashley Harrington, Senior Advisor at Office of Federal Student Aid. Ashley will share the latest news on last week's loan cancellation announcement, share an overview of PSLF and answer your PSLF questions. RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teach-and-psl...


Lift your voices as PSLF Promotores: https://sites.ed.gov/hispanic-initiative/p... Share your testimonial if you've had your loans forgiven and spotlight other actions you're taking in your community to promote PSLF. We'd especially love to see our Latino community's social media posts, op-eds and outreach in English and Spanish on our days of action as well as every day leading up to the October 31st deadline. Please share your testimonials, actions and links with us via whitehousehispanicinitiative@ed.gov.


Amplify the PSLF waiver deadline on social media tagging #PSLF @whitehousehpi @usedgov @SecCardona. Key sites to share:
The new White House PSLF site www.pslf.gov
The U.S. Department of Education's PSLF site www.studentaid.gov/pslfwaiver
Our White House Hispanic Initiative PSLF Promotores site to help you reach Latino public service workers sites.ed.gov/hispanic-initiative/pslf-promotores


Spread the word -- in real life.

Beyond engaging in social media, take some time to talk to your friends, family members and colleagues in education and public service jobs. Encourage them to apply for the PSLF program.

If you work in a school, nonprofit, health or first responder role, government office or other public service job, work with your organization to host webinars/trainings and to share resources that help employees walk through the PSLF application process.
Use our PSLF waiver toolkits for Educators and other stakeholders. https://financialaidtoolkit.ed.gov/resourc... and https://financialaidtoolkit.ed.gov/tk/anno...
