WASHINGTON (BRPROUD) — State-by-state data showing how many will be affected by President Biden’s plan for student debt relief was released Tuesday.

In August, Biden announced a plan that would provide $20,000 in debt relief to Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 in relief to other borrowers. The U.S. Department of Education said over 40 million borrowers are eligible, and nearly 20 million borrowers could see their entire remaining balance discharged.

Student loan payments are set to resume in January 2023.

Data on Louisiana shows 608,100 estimated borrowers will be eligible for student debt relief and 435,200 estimated Pell borrowers will be eligible. Both numbers are rounded to the nearest hundred.

Biden’s student debt relief plan targets borrowers with the greatest economic needs, with nearly 90% of relief headed to those earning less than $75,000 per year, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
