Material changes were made to the Loan Guarantee Agreement form, LGA10, to reflect the program change increasing the threshold amounts from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 in average outstanding balance and minimum outstanding balance to obtain ‘‘preferred lender’’ and ‘‘performance lender’’ designations. The Department also updated both its Loan Guarantee Agreement form and Loan Insurance Agreement form to increase the timeframe in which closing must occur following issuance of a loan guarantee certificate from 60 to 90 days and to add provisions that will allow the Department to publicize successful financing projects. The Department has also adjusted its burden hour estimates based on past experience with the program, refining the number of applications it expects to receive and the time it takes to complete them. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES II.

I. Abstract

    This information collection allows OFECR to receive written 
applications for allocations of the $400,000,000 in Tax Credit Bonding 
Authority granted to the Secretary as a result of the American 
Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (ARRA) of 2009. This bonding 
authority is for the purpose of the construction, rehabilitation and 
repair of BIA-funded schools. Indian tribes interested in obtaining an 
allocation of the bonding authority to finance construction, 
rehabilitation, or repair of a BIA-funded elementary or secondary 
school or dormitory must provide certain information as part of the 
application. The information collection allows OFECR to determine 
whether the project is eligible to be considered for an allocation. No 
third party notification or public disclosure burden is associated with 
this collection. OFECR obtained an emergency approval of this 
information collection from OMB to allow it to solicit applications for 
tax credit bonds. See 74 FR 56211 (October 30, 2009). OMB's approval 
for the information collection expires April 30, 2010. Because the tax 
credit bond authority extends through calendar year 2010, OFECR is 
requesting a renewal of the OMB authority to collect information from 
Indian tribes through applications.
    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 provides an opportunity for 
interested parties to comment on information collection requests. OFECR 
is proceeding with this public comment period as the first step in 
obtaining renewal of the information collection clearance from OMB. 
OFECR has adjusted its estimated number of respondents and responses 
downward based on its experience during the first six months of 
collecting this information. Each clearance request contains (1) type 
of review, (2) title, (3) summary of the collection, (4) respondents, 
(5) frequency of collection, (6) reporting and record keeping 
requirements.
