Comments submitted during the first public review of this ICR will be provided to OMB. OMB will accept further comments from the public during the review and approval period. DATES: Comments on this ICR should be received no later than May 25, 2017. SUMMARY: Submit your comments, including the Information Collection Request Title, to the desk officer for HRSA, either by email to OIRA_ submission@omb.eop.gov or by fax to 202–395–5806.

Information Collection Request Title: Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)— Program Specific Data Form, OMB No. 0915–0378—Revision. Abstract: This clearance request is for continued approval of the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) revised Program Specific Data Form. HRSA is streamlining the data collection form by making the following changes: • Line Item D will be renamed ‘‘D1. NFLP Loan Fund Balance/Unused Accumulation.’’ • Addition of Line Item D2 titled ‘‘NFLP Loan Fund Default Rate,’’ requesting information regarding the status of an institution’s default rate. • Addition of Line Item D3 titled ‘‘Last NFLP Student Loan Award,’’ requesting information regarding the disbursement of NFLP loan funds within the last 2 academic years. • Line Item E2 Column Header will be renamed ‘‘E.2 NFLP Enrollees Information by Degree—New Students Expected to Request NFLP Support.’’ • Under Section B of instructions, ‘‘other attachments’’ will be updated to reflect the current list of NFLP Funding Opportunity Announcement attachments. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The NFLP—Program Specific Data Form is a required electronic attachment within the NFLP application materials. The data provided in the form is essential for the ADDRESSES: formula-based criteria used to determine the award amount to the applicant schools. Continued approval of the revised NFLP—Program Specific Data Form allows HRSA to efficiently capture data to generate the formula-based award and facilitates reporting on the use of funds and analysis of program outcomes. The addition of Line Item D2, NFLP Loan Fund Default Rate, will allow HRSA to easily assess and consider an existing performance standard for those applicants with existing NFLP loan accounts. Used in combination with an existing NFLP institution’s self-reported NFLP loan balance, the addition of Line Item D3, Last NFLP Student Loan Award, will allow HRSA to assess the loan fund activity (i.e., incidence of loans to students) of an existing NFLP institution applying for additional funding. Likely Respondents: NFLP eligible applicants. This includes accredited schools of nursing offering eligible advanced masters and/or doctoral degree nursing education programs that will prepare students to serve as qualified nursing faculty. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total burden for this revised form has decreased by 480 hours due to an estimated decrease in number of respondents.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference, in compliance with Section SUMMARY: 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Information Collection Request Title: Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP), Annual Performance Report Financial Data Form, OMB No. 0915–0314— Revision. Abstract: This clearance request is for approval of a revision to the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, Annual Performance Report (NFLP–APR) Financial Data Form. The form was previously titled as the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, Annual Operating Report (NFLP–AOR). Section 846A of the Public Health Service Act provides the Secretary of HHS with the authority to enter into an agreement with schools of nursing for the establishment and operation of a student loan fund to increase the number of qualified nurse faculty. Under the agreement, HRSA makes an award to a participating school for the NFLP loan fund, which must be maintained in a distinct account. Each school of nursing then makes loans from the NFLP account to students enrolled full-time or, at the discretion of the Secretary, part-time, in a master’s or doctoral nursing education program that prepares the students to become qualified nursing faculty. Following graduation from the NFLP lending school, loan recipients may receive up to 85 percent NFLP loan cancellation over a consecutive 4-year period in exchange for service as full-time faculty at a school of nursing. The NFLP lending school collects the portion of the loan that is not cancelled and any loans that go into repayment due to default and deposits these monies into the NFLP loan fund to make additional NFLP loans. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The NFLP–APR Financial Data Form collects financial data online through HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks to capture the NFLP loan fund account activity related to financial receivables, disbursements, and borrower account data regarding employment status, loan cancellation, loan repayment, and collections. Participating schools provide HRSA with current and cumulative information on: (1) NFLP loan funds received, (2) number and amount of NFLP loans made, (3) number and amount of loans cancelled, (4) number and amount of loans in repayment, (5) loan default rate percent, (6) number of NFLP graduates employed as nurse faculty, and (7) other related loan fund costs and activities. Participating schools must keep records of all NFLP loan fund transactions. The revised NFLP–APR Financial Data Form no longer includes nursing student demographic data, which is collected under another form (OMB approval number 0915–0061). As a result, the annual burden is estimated to decrease by 440 hours. The information requested from participating schools in the revised NFLP–APR Financial Data Form is not available from any other source. In accordance with statute and program guidelines, the NFLP–APR Financial Data Form is used to monitor grantee performance by collecting information related to the NFLP loan fund operations and financial activities for the July 1 through June 30 academic year. Participating schools must submit the NFLP–APR Financial Data Form annually. Likely Respondents: Participating NFLP schools are required to adhere to reporting requirements. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This burden includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
