On July 7, 2010, the Department’s Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) published a Notice in the Federal Register providing interim final requirements and request for comments regarding SAFRA Act Payments to Loan Servicers for Job Retention. Under this SAFRA Act provision the Secretary is required to provide payments to loan servicers for retaining jobs at locations in the United States where such servicers were operating under the FFEL Program on January 1, 2010. The SAFRA Act authorized and appropriated $25,000,000 for each of FY 2010 and FY 2011 for the Department to make these payments.
