Among ARRA’s several initiatives to re-invigorate small businesses is the revision of the job creation goals of SBA’s 504 Program. The purpose of the 504 Program is to foster economic development and create and preserve job opportunities in both urban and rural areas by providing longterm financing for small business concerns. Loans made under the 504 Program are principally used by small businesses to build or to purchase longterm fixed assets (mostly acquiring land and constructing or renovating commercial buildings) to assist in the growth of the business. U.S. Office of Personnel Management. Kathie Ann Whipple, Acting Director. [FR Doc. E9–8159 Filed 4–9–09; 8:45 am] correction, with supporting justification showing how the record is incomplete, untimely, inaccurate or irrelevant. This procedure is in accordance with OPIC Regulations (22 CFR 707.22). Under the 504 Program, a 504 loan is required to create or retain a minimum number of jobs within two years of the disbursement of the loan as a result of the project or to meet other defined economic development objectives (13 CFR 120.861–120.862). The standards for determining whether a project meets the job creation or retention requirements are set forth in section 501(e) of the Small Business Investment Act. In the Section 504 Loan Application, the borrower will enter the number of jobs to be created or retained as a result of the project and the CDC will verify that it meets the job creation or retention requirements. In addition, the job impact data will continue to be entered into SBA’s database, and the application data combined with data from annual CDC reports will be used to report the total number of jobs created or retained. To stimulate the growth of small business and create more job opportunities, section 504(b) of the Recovery Act, amends the minimum number of jobs that are required to be created or retained per dollar amount guaranteed by SBA by increasing such dollar amount from $50,000 to $65,000, as follows: (1) A Project must create or retain one Job Opportunity per $65,000 of 504 loan funding, or (2) For Projects that are eligible under the 504 Program under 13 CFR 120.862, a CDC’s portfolio must reflect an average of one Job Opportunity for every $65,000 guaranteed by SBA. The remaining amounts listed below are unchanged from the amounts set forth in section 501(e)(1) and (3) of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958: (1) A Project must create or retain one Job Opportunity per $100,000 of 504 BILLING CODE 6325–38–P [OMB Control No. 3206–0215; OPM Form RI 25–49] Submission for OMB Review; Request for Comments on an Existing Information Collection AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.
