ACTION: Notice of Pilot Program extension. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces SBA’s extension of the CommunityExpress Pilot Program until March 30, 2008. This extension will allow SBA to complete and implement a restructuring of the CommunityExpress program. DATES: The CommunityExpress Pilot Program is extended under this notice until March 30, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles Thomas, Office of Financial Assistance, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street, SW., Washington, DC 20416; Telephone (202) 205–6490; charles.thomas@sba.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CommunityExpress Pilot Program was established in 1999 based on the Agency’s SBAExpress Program. Lenders approved for participation in CommunityExpress are authorized to use the expedited loan processing procedures in place for the SBAExpress Program, but the loans approved under this Program must be to distressed or underserved markets. To encourage lenders to make these loans, SBA provides its standard 75–85 percent guaranty, which contrasts with the 50 percent guaranty the Agency provides under SBAExpress. However, under CommunityExpress, participating lenders must arrange and, when necessary, pay for appropriate technical assistance for their borrowers under the program. Maximum loan amounts under this Program are limited to $250,000. SBA previously extended CommunityExpress until December 31, 2007 (72 FR 13341), to discuss and develop possible changes and enhancements to the Program. The further extension of this Program until March 30, 2008, will allow SBA to develop several new concepts designed to improve the potential effectiveness and efficiency of the program and enhance the prospects of success for the small business borrowers under it. 58 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).

The Program Structure was developed in 2006 through a deliberative interagency process as part of the Secretary’s Foreign Assistance Reform. It serves as a lexicon for categorizing and tracking foreign assistance activities from a number of different foreign assistance appropriation accounts, collectively totaling approximately $25 billion in U.S. Foreign Assistance. F will consider changes to the Program Structure through a three-phase process: • Phase I will engage public stakeholders (including NonGovernmental Organizations—NGOs) in dialogue; • Phase II will engage Federal interagency partners; and • Phase III will occur when all external and internal stakeholder input is collected and analyzed, and then forwarded to the Director of U.S. Foreign Assistance for a decision regarding proposed adjustments to the Program Structure. This process is expected to take 4–6 months from the start date of the first stage, and will result in a refined Program Structure that will serve as the foundation for future planning and performance products. This notice pertains to Phase I. The purpose of the consultative process is to fulfill a commitment to engage with external stakeholders to obtain input to improve the Program Structure (for example, to clarify definitions, identify gaps, or remove duplication). Consultation with external stakeholders and analysis of their inputs are expected to last for a period of between 8–12 weeks. F will use the administrative, technical, and logistical services of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) to facilitate consultations. Effective December 19, 2007, the Department of State will solicit the public for recommended changes at the ‘‘program area’’ level (e.g., Transnational Crime; Rule of Law and Human Rights; Health; Macroecomonic Foundation for Growth; Disaster Readiness) of the structure, and below (i.e., program element; program subelement). The public is strongly encouraged to review the PROGRAM STRUCTURE by going to the following Internet site: http://www.state.gov/ documents/organization/93447.pdf. Written recommendations for changes will be accepted ONLY between December 27–January 18, 2008, and must be made, by means of e-mail, to the following address: ForeignAssistanceDefinitions@state.gov. Recommendations must state clearly the E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1
