Rural District Loan Forgiveness
CERRA was charged with the responsibility to develop and administer an incentive program to recruit and retain classroom teachers in rural and underserved districts that have experienced excessive turnover of teachers. One of those incentives includes loan forgiveness funds for eligible teachers in these districts. Educators with federal Direct or Perkins loans that have been placed into administrative deferment as a part of the CARES Act are eligible to apply for the Rural District Undergraduate Loan Forgiveness Program. Below you will find a video with important details on this program.
