Our Work

Calling for Loan Discharge!


January 2024 Bloom + Grow began holding monthly workshops for applicants of the Borrower Defense Loan Discharge program. We created a form and corresponding google sheet to capture and crowd share supporting evidence for completing the Borrower Defense Loan Discharge application. We encourage mental health providers who feel they are eligible to apply to do so not just with their own benefit in mind, but also to join with others in a direct action. This is an invitation to participate in sending a flood of applications to overwhelm an under-prepared system, increasing processing time for the benefit of all applying. Bloom+Grow will host co-working space to complete the application in community 1/9, 2/9, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10 5-7pm pst via zoom (potential for future dates).
