Specific information collection requirements include financial information in the form of a balance sheet and cash flow projection used in loan making and servicing decisions; information needed to establish joint bank accounts in which loan funds, proceeds derived from the sale of loan security and insurance proceeds, may be deposited; collateral pledges from financial institutions when the balance of a supervised bank account will exceed the maximum amount insurable by the Federal Government; and documents that construction plans and specifications to comply with state and local building standards. Since the introduction of Microloan Loan (ML) Program certain forms are being used less in this request and there are fewer farmers and businesses reporting information resulting in a total program changes decrease of 6,997 respondents; 16,392 responses; and 19,678 burden hours. For the following estimated total annual burden on respondents, the formula used to calculate the total burden hours is the estimated average time per response multiplied by the estimated total annual responses. Estimated Respondent Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.12 hours per response. The average travel time, which is included in the total annual burden, is estimated to be 1 hour per respondent.

Estimated Total Annual Number of Responses: 204,438. Estimated Average Time per Response: 1.12 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 229,203 hours.
