SUMMARY: The Secretary announces that the 1995-96 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 selected elementary or secondary school having a high
concentration of students from low-income families. In the 1995-96
Directory, the Secretary lists, on a State-by-State and Territory-by-
Territory basis, the schools in which a borrower may teach during the
1995-96 school year to qualify for deferment and cancellation benefits.

qualify the borrower for deferment and cancellation benefits under the
procedures set forth in 34 CFR 674.53, 674.54 and 674.55 of the Federal
