Subject: Incorrect Federal Perkins Loan Program Level of Expenditure on 2011-2012 Campus-Based Final Funding Worksheets (Updated May 23, 2011)

Note: On May 20, 2011, we corrected the Total Authorized Level of Expenditure (LOE) amount for the Federal Perkins Loan Program that was incorrectly reflected as $0.  For complete information, refer to http://ifap.ed.gov/eannouncements/052311FedPerkinsLoanProgramLevelofExpenditureData1112.html.

In accordance with the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (P. L. 112-10), on Friday, May 13, 2011 we distributed recalculated 2011-2012 Final Funding Authorizations for the Campus-Based Programs.  We have discovered that the Final Funding Worksheets incorrectly indicate the Total Level of Expenditure (LOE) for Federal Perkins Loan Program amounts as $0. The Federal Work Study and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant funds indicated in the Final Funding Worksheets are correct.

Although P.L. 112-10 did not allocate funds to the Department of Education to issue 2011-2012 Federal Perkins Loan Federal Capital Contributions or 2009-2010 Federal Perkins Loan Service Cancellation Reimbursements, LOE was unaffected.  In most cases the Final Perkins LOE will not change from what was indicated on the Campus-Based Tentative Funding Worksheet made available February 1, 2011. (See Electronic Announcement dated January 25, 2011 Tentative 2011-2012 Funding Levels for the Campus-Based Programs.)  You can review your 2011-2012 Campus-Based Tentative Funding Worksheets through the Self-Service page on the eCampus-Based Web Site.

We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.  We will correct the issue as soon as possible and provide notification to you when the updated information is available.
