The Secretary announces an extension of the deadline dates for specific filing and reporting activities, including those published in the Federal Register on March 22, 2005 (70 FR 14450), April 13, 2005 (70 FR 19423), and June 7, 2005 (70 FR 33134). The Secretary takes this action as a result of the extensive damage and disruption in the southern United States caused by Hurricane Katrina. The new dates apply only to (1) institutions or third-party servicers that are located in a federally-declared disaster area and that were adversely affected by Hurricane Katrina, and (2) applicants that are adversely affected by the hurricane. In addition, the Secretary reminds affected parties that additional guidance and regulatory relief are provided in Dear Colleague Letter GEN-04-04, available at: http://www.ifap.ed.gov/dpcletters/ GEN0404.html.
