SUMMARY: The Secretary announces that the 1996-97 Federal Perkins Loan
and National Direct Student Loan Programs Directory of Designated Low-
Income Schools (Directory) is now available. Under the Federal Perkins
Loan and National Direct Student Loan programs, a borrower may have
repayment of his or her loan deferred and a portion of his or her loan
canceled if the borrower teaches full-time for a complete academic year
in a designated elementary or secondary school having a high
concentration of students from low-income families. In the 1996-97
Directory, the Secretary lists, on a State-by-State and Territory-by-
Territory basis, the schools in which a borrower may teach during the
1996-97 school year to qualify for deferment and cancellation benefits.

Directory may be obtained from Patricia Reese, Systems Administration

qualify the borrower for deferment and cancellation benefits under the
procedures contained in the Federal Perkins Loan program regulations at
