Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 144,930. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 26,409. Abstract: The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) Program regulatory requirements for reporting, record-keeping and notification are approved under OMB 1845–0125 after the transfer from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to the U.S. Department of Education in 2014.

These regulations work to ensure that participants in the program follow sound management procedures in the administration of the federal loan program. Dated: March 24, 2016.
