SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Abstract The Economic Development Administration (‘‘EDA’’) leads the Federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy. The EDA Revolving Loan Fund (‘‘RLF’’) Program, authorized under section 209 of the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965, as amended (‘‘PWEDA’’) (42 U.S.C. 3149), has served as an important pillar of EDA investment programs since the establishment of the RLF Program in 1975. The purpose of the RLF Program is to provide regions with a flexible and continuing source of capital, to be used VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Aug 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 with other economic development tools, for creating and retaining jobs and inducing private investment that will contribute to long-term economic stability and growth. EDA provides RLF grants to eligible recipients, which include State and local governments, Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations, to operate a lending program that offers loans with flexible repayment terms, primarily to small businesses in distressed communities that are unable to obtain traditional bank financing. These loans enable small businesses to expand and lead to new employment opportunities that pay competitive wages and benefits. A unique feature of the RLF Program is that, by law, EDA must exercise fiduciary responsibility over its RLF portfolio in perpetuity. EDA RLF regulations therefore require RLF recipients to submit Form ED–209, Revolving Loan Fund Financial Report, every six months for each RLF they operate (13 CFR 307.14(a)). In addition, RLF recipients must submit Form ED– 209I, RLF Income and Expense Statement, if either of the following conditions applies to their RLF: Administrative expenses for the reporting period exceeded $100,000, or RLF administrative expenses for the reporting period exceeded 50 percent of RLF income earned during the reporting period (13 CFR 307.14(c)). EDA requires that both of these reports be completed using an authorized and EDA-provided fillable PDF (Portable Document Format) Form. II. Method of Collection Currently, Form ED–209 and Form ED–209I may be obtained by RLF recipients from EDA’s Web site, www.eda.gov, or upon request from EDA RLF Administrators at each of the EDA regional offices. RLF recipients are responsible for completing the Forms and submitting them to their assigned EDA RLF Administrators in compliance with EDA regulations. III. Data Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number: 0610–0095. Form Number(s): ED–209 and ED– 209I. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Affected Public: EDA RLF recipients: State, local and tribal governments; community organizations; not-for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,328. Estimated Time per Response: ED– 209, 3 hours; and ED–209I, 1 hour. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40553 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 3,796 Hours.

IV.
