The Biden-Harris Administration’s Student Debt Relief Plan Explainedhttps://studentaid.gov/debt-relief-announcement/one-time-cancellation On Aug. 24, 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a Student Debt Relief Plan that includes one-time student loan debt relief targeted to low- and middle-income families. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) will provide up to $20,000 in debt relief to Federal Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 in debt relief to non-Pell Grant recipients. Borrowers with loans held by ED are eligible for this relief if their individual income is less than $125,000 (or $250,000 for households).

The path to higher education shouldn’t be a secret, so we make sure every student has the information and guidance they need to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. We achieve these goals through academic mentoring, family engagement, as well as through workshops such as QuickStart to College and Financial Literacy (FAFSA/WASFA) events.
