Governor designates THECB as administering agency
July 12, 2010
As required by the Department of Justice, Governor Rick Perry has designated the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to be Texas' administering agency for the John R. Justice Student Loan Repayment Program. Those of you who have received (panicked) emails about this designation can rest assured that Texas is well on its way to applying for the funds eligible under this program.
TDCAA is working with THECB and the Texas Task Force on Indigent Defense (TFID) to finalize the state's application and submit it later this month. For more information on this process, visit TFID's information page at http://www.courts.state.tx.us/tfid/JRJprogram.asp.
