Protecting Consumers-Promoting the Profession
NASW is promoting loan forgiveness for social workers as part of its on-going work to improve working conditions, salaries, and other benefits for members of the profession and to ensure that consumers have access to qualified professionals. NASW will continue its support for proposals to provide loan forgiveness for social workers in child welfare and schools, while also working to secure loan forgiveness and other educational supports for social workers in other practice areas. Loan forgiveness legislation will be considered by Congress during deliberations on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1998.
This page will be updated, as needed, based on actions taken by the 110th Congress.
