    Abstract: The Child Care Provider Loan Forgiveness Application is 
used to determine whether borrowers meet the eligibility requirements 
for Child Care Provider Loan Forgiveness Program which is a 
demonstration program administered on a first-come, first-serve basis 
(subject to the availability of funds) and is intended to bring more 
highly trained individuals into the early child care field for longer 
periods. Under this program, individuals who work full-time in certain 
child care facilities that serve low-income families and meet other 
qualifications may be eligible to have up to 100% of their Direct Loan 
and/or Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program loan forgiven. The 
Child Care Provider Loan Forgiveness Forbearance Form is required to 
fulfill program guidance that provides forbearance for child care 
providers and to determine the child care providers eligibility for 
forbearance.
