If you are employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization, you might be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
In addition to adding many librarians to the list of eligible professionals for Federal Perkins Loan forgiveness, The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 made all employees working in public service eligible for tax-free forgiveness of 100% of their principal and interest balance through Public Service Loan Forgiveness”.
There is also the Temporary Expanded Public Service Loan Forgiveness (TEPSLF) program for those who would not otherwise be eligible. TEPSLF provided, and continues to provide, a limited amount of money to allow for employees who are on repayment plans that are ineligible for PSLF to receive forgiveness of their loans.
