12:00pm-1:00pm PT
Hosted by The National Council of Nonprofits

Time is running out for nonprofit employees to take advantage of the limited Public Service Loan Forgiveness waiver. If you work for a nonprofit and have federal student loans, you only have until October 31 to apply for this temporary expansion of the program. Even payments that previously didn’t count toward forgiveness of your student loans could be eligible under this limited-time program. Join us to hear from experts – and have your questions answered – about Public Service Loan Forgiveness to learn how you could be much closer to loan forgiveness than you think!


This free national webinar is brought to you by the National Council of Nonprofits.
