1.12.3 NCLC’s Student Loan Borrower Assistance Project
In 2007, NCLC established a Student Loan Borrower Assistance Project (SLBA). SLBA is focused on providing information about student loan rights and responsibilities for borrowers and advocates. SLBA also seeks to increase public understanding of student lending issues and to identify policy solutions to promote access to education, lessen student debt burdens, and make loan repayment more manageable.
The project has a website that can be accessed through the NCLC site (www.nclc.org) or at www.studentloanborrowerassistance.org. The website contains extensive information about student loan borrower rights as well as advocacy resources, reports, and announcements. Appendix H, infra, has basic information about NCLC’s Student Loan Borrower Assistance Project website.
