SUMMARY: Disaster areas declared for storm damage
and flooding in Alabama and Colorado.


Dear Guaranty Agency Director:

President Clinton recently declared BALDWIN,
CHOCTAW, and MOBILE counties in
ALABAMA to be disaster areas because of storm
damage and flooding that occurred in those
counties beginning July 17. The President also
declared LARIMER, LOGAN, and MORGAN
counties in COLORADO to be disaster areas
because of storm damage and flooding that
occurred starting July 28. The Department's
interim disaster-related forbearance policies first
issued on January 14, 1997 may be applied to
assist residents of those six counties.

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
Policy Development Division
Student Financial Assistance Programs
