SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: (7 CFR part 767) Farm Loan Programs— Inventory Property Management, OMB Number: 0560–0234, Expiration Date: 03/31/2017, Type of Request: Extension with a revision. Abstract: FSA’s Farm Loan Programs provide supervised credit in the form of loans to family farmers to purchase real estate and equipment and finance agricultural production. Inventory Property Management, as specified in 7 CFR part 767, provides the requirements for the management, lease, and sale of security property acquired by FSA. FSA may take title to real estate as part of dealing with a problem loan either by entering a winning bid in an attempt to protect its interest at a foreclosure sale, or by accepting a deed of conveyance in lieu of foreclosure. Information collections established in the regulation are necessary for FSA to determine an applicant’s eligibility to lease or purchase inventory property and to ensure the applicant’s ability to make payment on the lease or purchase amount. The number of respondents and burden hours increase in the request. The increase is based on an approximate 13% increase in the number of inventory properties being held by FSA since the previous approval request. No additional forms, response actions, or time increases are added to the request. The formula used to calculate the total burden hour is estimated average time per responses hours times total annual responses. Estimate of Average Time to respond: 44 minutes per response. The average travel time, which is included in the total annual burden, is estimated to be 1 hour per respondent. Respondents: Individuals or households, businesses or other for profit farms. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 351. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.03. Total Annual Responses: 363. Estimated Average Time per Response: 1.69.
