Publication of the TEACH Grant Program and Faith-based Entities Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM)

On December 11, 2019, the Department of Education published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking revising the current regulations regarding the eligibility of faith-based entities to participate in the Federal Student Aid programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), and the eligibility of students to obtain certain benefits under those programs. The Secretary is also proposing to simplify the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program requirements to minimize the number of TEACH Grants that are converted to Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and to update, strengthen, and clarify other areas of the TEACH Grant Program regulations.

The public will have 30 days after the date of publication to provide comments through www.regulations.gov.
