AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Secretary of Education announces the annual updates to the tables that will be used in the statutory ‘‘Federal Need Analysis Methodology’’ to determine a student’s expected family contribution (EFC) for award year 2007– 2008 for the student financial aid programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). An EFC is the amount a student and his or her family may reasonably be expected to contribute toward the student’s postsecondary educational costs for purposes of determining financial aid eligibility. The Title IV programs include the Federal Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant, campus-based (Federal Perkins Loan, Federal WorkStudy, and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Programs), Federal Family Education Loan, and William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Programs (Title IV HEA Programs). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Marya Dennis, Management and Program Analyst, U.S. Department of Education, Union Center Plaza, 830 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20202. Telephone: (202) 377–3385. If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD), you may call the Federal Relay Service (FRS) at 1–800–877–8339. Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape or computer diskette) on request to the contact person listed in the preceding paragraph. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Part F of Title IV of the HEA specifies the criteria, data elements, calculations, and tables used in the Federal Need Analysis Methodology EFC calculations. Section 478 of Part F of the HEA requires the Secretary to adjust four of the tables—the Income Protection Allowance, the Adjusted Net Worth of a Business or Farm, the Education Savings and Asset Protection Allowance, and the Assessment Schedules and Rates—each award year to adjust for general price inflation. The changes are based, in general, upon increases in the Consumer Price Index. For award year 2007–2008 the Secretary is charged with updating the income protection allowance, adjusted net worth of a business or farm, and the assessment schedules and rates to account for inflation that took place between December 2005 and December 2006. However, because the Secretary must publish these tables before December 2006, the increases in the tables must be based upon a percentage equal to the estimated percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for 2005. The Secretary estimates that the increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI–U) for the period December 2005 through December 2006 will be 2.8 percent. Additionally, the Higher Education Reconciliation Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–171) modified the updating procedure for the income protection allowance table for independent students with dependents other than a spouse. These table values are increased by the greater of 5 percent or the Secretary’s estimated increase in the CPI–U (2.8 percent). The updated tables are in sections 1, 2, and 4 of this notice. The Secretary must also revise, for each award year, the education savings and asset protection allowances as provided for in section 478(d) of the HEA. The Education Savings and Asset Protection Allowance table for award year 2007–2008 has been updated in section 3 of this notice. Section 478(h) of the HEA also requires the Secretary to increase the amount specified for the Employment Expense Allowance, adjusted for inflation. This calculation is based upon increases in the Bureau of Labor Statistics budget of the marginal costs for a two-worker compared to a one-worker family for food away from home, apparel, transportation, and household furnishings and operations. The Employment Expense Allowance table for award year 2007–2008 has been updated in section 5 of this notice. The HEA provides for the following annual updates: 1. Income Protection Allowance. This allowance is the amount of living expenses associated with the maintenance of an individual or family that may be offset against the family’s income. It varies by family size. The income protection allowance for the dependent student is $3,000. The income protection allowances for parents of dependent students for award year 2007–2008 is: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES PARENTS OF DEPENDENT STUDENTS Number in college Family size 1 2 ............................................................................................................... 3 ...............................................................................................................
