The Federal Perkins Loan Program – 2018 and Beyond

COHEAO continues to advocate for a replacement for the Perkins Loan Program. The natural place for this to occur is during Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. Although the reauthorization process has begun, it is still in the early stages. COHEAO’s proposal for reauthorization is the Perkins ARC (Access Retention Completion) Loan. We will continue to work with Congress on securing a replacement for a much-needed campus-based program.
