Farm Service Agency Title: 7 CFR 764, Direct Loan Making. OMB Control Number: 0560–0237. Summary of Collection: The Farm Loan Program (FLP) provides loans to family farmers to purchase real estate and equipment and finance agricultural production. The regulation covered by this collection describes the policies and procedures the agency uses to provide supervised credit to FLP applicants requesting direct loan assistance in accordance with the provisions of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1921) (Pub. L. 87–128), as amended. Authority to establish the regulatory requirements contained in 7 CFR 764, is provided under 5 U.S.C. 301, which provides that ‘‘The Head of an Executive department or military department may prescribe regulations for the government of his department, the distribution and performance of its business . . .’’ The Secretary delegated authority to administer the provisions of the Act applicable to the Farm Loan Program (FLP) to the Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Service in section 2.16 of 7 CFR part 2. FLP provides loans to family farmers to purchase real estate equipment and finance agricultural production. Need and Use of the Information: Information is submitted by the applicants to the local agency office serving the county in which their business is headquartered. The information is necessary to thoroughly evaluate the applicant’s request for a direct loan and is used by agency officials to: (1) Ensure that cash flow projections used in determining loan repayment are based on the actual production history of the operation, (2) Ensure that a loan is adequately secured. (3) Ensure the applicant meets the statutorily established program eligibility requirements, and (4) Obtain assignment on income or sales proceeds, when appropriate, to ensure timely repayment of the loans. Since the agency is mandated to provide supervised credit, failure to collect the PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information, or collecting it less frequently, could result in the failure of the farm operation or loss of agency security property.
