SUMMARY: Disaster areas declared for storm damage and
flooding in Michigan, Texas, and Wisconsin.


Dear Guaranty Agency Director:

President Clinton recently declared several counties in Texas
and Wisconsin to be disaster areas because of storm damage
and flooding that began in those states on or about June 21,
and he declared three counties in Michigan to be disaster areas
because of tornadoes and other violent weather that struck that
state on July 2. The Department's interim disaster-related
forbearance policies first issued on January 14, 1997 may be
applied for the following areas:

Michigan:Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne.

Texas: Bandera, Bexar, Burnet, Guadalupe, Kendall, Kerr,
Llano, Mason, Medina, Real, Travis, and Uvalde.

Wisconsin: Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha, and
Washington.

Lenders and guaranty agencies may contact the Department's
toll-free number at 1-800-433-7327, Monday through Friday
from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST for further updates. This
letter has also been sent to each regional office of the
Department, plus the National Council of Higher Education
Loan Programs, Inc., the Consumer Bankers Association, and
the National Association of Student Financial Aid
Administrators.

Sincerely,


Pamela A. Moran
Chief, Loans Branch
