The recent announcement of federal student loan debt forgiveness has exposed strong opinions on both sides of the issue. Aside from the passionate arguments from the pro and con crowds, there are many other issues and points of discussion that have arisen in light of loan forgiveness. One of the less discussed aspects of student loan debt debacle is the balances owed even after some debt has been forgiven. Many people will still have enormous debt, even after receiving the maximum forgiveness available.
For those that will still need assistance after the forgiveness is applied, there is a webinar that may provide some guidance that is helpful. The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) is sponsoring a Student Loan Debt Webinar to provide resources and strategies to assist indebted individuals. The webinar is scheduled for September 22, 2022, starting at 7:00 PM EST. The session is scheduled to last for roughly 1.5 hours, so expect lots of valuable information: don’t forget your notebooks!
NCNW is, “Washington, D.C.-based charitable organization making a difference in the lives of women, children, and families through a four-pronged strategy that emphasizes entrepreneurship, health equity, STEAM education, and social justice.” The organization does a splendid job of offering timely tips and actionable information, and I think the Student Loan Debt Webinar will be an invaluable resource to those interested. With nearly 100 years of commitment to service, the organization has a long track record of giving back and uplifting the population it serves.
If I find any other useful information for you all (regarding student loan debt or any other barriers to financial freedom), I’ll be sure to post them here!
