The U.S. Department of Education invites teachers 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 and the limited time Public Service Loan Forgiveness waiver 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.

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