Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This collection of information is required specifically for the application and administration of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Federal Housing Administration Section 242 Hospital Mortgage Insurance Program pursuant to 24 CFR 242, 241, 223(f), and 223(a)(7). The collection is a comprehensive set of HUD documents that are critically needed for processing applications and loan endorsements for FHA mortgage insurance under the Section 242 Hospital Mortgage Insurance Program, for ongoing asset management of such facilities, and other information related to these facilities for loan modifications, construction projects, and physical and environmental reviews. This information is requested and is used by the Office of Healthcare Facilities (OHF) and Office of Architecture and Engineering (OAE) within FHA’s Office of Healthcare Programs (OHP). The purpose for which the information is being collected by HUD is to review Section 242 applications to determine the eligibility of applicant hospitals for FHA mortgage insurance, underwrite insured hospital loans, ensure that the collateral securing each loan is adequate, capture administrative data, process initial/final endorsement, and manage FHA’s hospital portfolio. Additional information related to loan modifications, construction projects, E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 161 / Tuesday, August 20, 2019 / Notices and physical and environmental reviews is collected if applicable. The information being collected consists of various HUD forms that program participants complete with project specifications, technical descriptions, details, and/or signatures that are utilized by HUD during various stages of the application, underwriting, commitment, closing, and asset management processes involved with the administration of FHA’s Section 242 mortgage insurance program. The information is used by HUD staff for internal review of applications to determine if projects qualify for Section 242 hospital mortgage insurance and to manage and monitor the application, commitment, initial/final endorsement, asset management, and administration processes needed to support hospital projects insured by FHA. Agreements and legal documents are used by HUD staff, lenders, borrowers, construction managers, and depository institutions, when applicable, to process initial/final endorsement of loans. Information reported for ongoing asset management of FHA-insured facilities will be used by HUD staff to monitor and manage risk within the FHA portfolio and ensure ongoing compliance with HUD Program Obligations. Information is also be used by HUD staff to determine whether the Program meets its stated goals and management objectives. The information is collected from lenders/ mortgage bankers, borrowers/hospital management officials, attorneys, general contractors/construction managers, architects/engineers, agents and others involved in hospital projects, which may, at times include local government entities and other third parties, as well as HUD staff to allow OHF to manage and monitor the application, commitment, initial/final endorsement, asset management, and administration processes needed to support hospital projects insured by FHA. This collection is needed to update and renew the current collection that was approved for a 36-month period by OMB on August 19, 2016, with an expiration date of August 31, 2019. Where changes have been made to existing OHF forms, the proposed versions are also presented in both redline/strikeout and unmarked formats. New or unchanged forms are presented in unmarked format. The revised hospital documents can be viewed at: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/ HUD?src=/federal_housing_ administration/healthcare_facilities/ section_242/additional_resources/242_ docs_2019renewal. Two new forms are being added to this collection: HUD–92266–OHF VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Aug 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 (Application for Transfer of Physical Assets) and HUD–92476B–OHF (Escrow Agreement for Proceeds from Partial Release of Collateral). The HUD–92266– OHF form is based on an existing Office of Multifamily form, modified for Section 242-insured hospitals. The application collects the information required for OHF staff to review requests to transfer insured physical assets to new purchasers that will continue to hold the FHA-insured loan. The HUD–92476B–OHF is being added to provide an escrow agreement template for infrequent instances when a borrower sells and requests to release HUD-insured collateral. Both documents are based on existing versions used by the Office of Housing in other mortgage insurance programs but modified to appropriately reflect Section 242 program needs. HUD–9250–OHF (Funds Authorizations) will be removed from the collection. The document was added to Collection 2502–0602 in a prior submission and was based upon a similar form used for OHP’s residential care facility program. The form has proven to be unnecessary for the Section 242 hospital program and will be removed. Thirty-five of the forty documents within the collection are being renewed with no operational content changes, except for updated burden hour estimates and additional language added to the burden statements to ensure that requirements under 5 CFR 1320.8(b)(3) are met. Additional language (specifically, the phrase ‘‘under penalty of perjury’’) was also added to clarify fraud warnings and certification for forms with certifications. Revisions are proposed for the HUD–92466–OHF (Regulatory Agreement), HUD–92422–OHF (Financial and Statistical Data for HUD Reporting), and HUD–94000–OHF (Security Instrument) to include edits that were made to clarify current policies and definitions, reflect updated general accepted accounting standards, or to address minor inconsistencies across documents. A summary of the specific changes made to the revised documents is provided below. Summary of Changes to Documents HUD–92476B–OHF Escrow Agreement for Proceeds from Partial Release of Collateral. New document used to establish an escrow agreement and escrow account as part of the approval process for the partial release of FHAinsured collateral.

Requires approval of all advances in writing by HUD and the Lender. HUD–92266–OHF Application for Transfer of Physical Assets. New document based on an existing Office of Multifamily Housing application form for Transfer of Physical Assets transactions, modified for Section 242insured hospitals.

Some restricted and unrestricted net asset accounts were combined and account names and definitions were updated. A note was added to clarify that ‘‘Bad Debt Expense’’ can be recorded as a separate line item, depending on the accounting reporting standards being used. HUD–94000–OHF Security Instrument/Mortgage/Deed of Trust. In Section 1 (Definitions), the definition of Patient Accounts Receivables was clarified in the definition of Accounts Receivables. The definition of Personality and Mortgaged Property was revised to add the income or sales distributed from a joint venture. HUD–92466–OHF Hospital Regulatory Agreement—Borrower.

Added ‘‘BOARD REVIEW’’ to title for clarity. In Section 19(c)(iv), removed ‘‘pro forma balance sheet’’ as a deliverable and clarified Business Plan deliverables to HUD for income statement and cash flow analysis. Combined the roles of ‘‘Review Consultant’’ and ‘‘Independent Consultant’’ into one consultant to allow for more timely review and cost savings for Borrower. • Section 20—Additional Indebtedness. Under Long Term Debt, clarified when HUD consent is needed versus notification and timing; added CEO to parties eligible to submit documentation for notification; and added new section 20(a)(vi) to specify Borrower agreement to assets becoming part of the Mortgaged Property at HUD’s discretion upon release of a lien. Under Unsecured Short-Term Debt, clarified when HUD consent is needed versus notification and timing and added CEO to parties eligible to submit documentation for notification. Added Section 20(c) for Lines of Credit to apply to short-term and long-term lines of credits secured by accounts receivable. • Section 21—Successor Clause. Removed Section 21(a). Clarified successor clauses and definitions to emphasize HUD’s option for approval. • Section 29—Permits and Approvals.

    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This 
collection of information is required specifically for the application 
and administration of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, 
Federal Housing Administration Section 242 Hospital Mortgage Insurance 
Program pursuant to 24 CFR 242, 241, 223(f), and 223(a)(7). The 
collection is a comprehensive set of HUD documents that are critically 
needed for processing applications and loan endorsements for FHA 
mortgage insurance under the Section 242 Hospital Mortgage Insurance 
Program, for ongoing asset management of such facilities, and other 
information related to these facilities for loan modifications, 
construction projects, and physical and environmental reviews.
    This information is requested and is used by the Office of 
Healthcare Facilities (OHF) and Office of Architecture and Engineering 
(OAE) within FHA's Office of Healthcare Programs (OHP).
    The purpose for which the information is being collected by HUD is 
to review Section 242 applications to determine the eligibility of 
applicant hospitals for FHA mortgage insurance, underwrite insured 
hospital loans, ensure that the collateral securing each loan is 
adequate, capture administrative data, process initial/final 
endorsement, and manage FHA's hospital portfolio. Additional 
information related to loan modifications, construction projects,

[[Page 43155]]

and physical and environmental reviews is collected if applicable.
    The information being collected consists of various HUD forms that 
program participants complete with project specifications, technical 
descriptions, details, and/or signatures that are utilized by HUD 
during various stages of the application, underwriting, commitment, 
closing, and asset management processes involved with the 
administration of FHA's Section 242 mortgage insurance program.
    The information is used by HUD staff for internal review of 
applications to determine if projects qualify for Section 242 hospital 
mortgage insurance and to manage and monitor the application, 
commitment, initial/final endorsement, asset management, and 
administration processes needed to support hospital projects insured by 
FHA. Agreements and legal documents are used by HUD staff, lenders, 
borrowers, construction managers, and depository institutions, when 
applicable, to process initial/final endorsement of loans. Information 
reported for ongoing asset management of FHA-insured facilities will be 
used by HUD staff to monitor and manage risk within the FHA portfolio 
and ensure ongoing compliance with HUD Program Obligations. Information 
is also be used by HUD staff to determine whether the Program meets its 
stated goals and management objectives. The information is collected 
from lenders/mortgage bankers, borrowers/hospital management officials, 
attorneys, general contractors/construction managers, architects/
engineers, agents and others involved in hospital projects, which may, 
at times include local government entities and other third parties, as 
well as HUD staff to allow OHF to manage and monitor the application, 
commitment, initial/final endorsement, asset management, and 
administration processes needed to support hospital projects insured by 
FHA.
    This collection is needed to update and renew the current 
collection that was approved for a 36-month period by OMB on August 19, 
2016, with an expiration date of August 31, 2019. Where changes have 
been made to existing OHF forms, the proposed versions are also 
presented in both redline/strikeout and unmarked formats. New or 
unchanged forms are presented in unmarked format. The revised hospital 
documents can be viewed at: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/federal_housing_administration/healthcare_facilities/section_242/additional_resources/242_docs_2019renewal.
    Two new forms are being added to this collection: HUD-92266-OHF 
(Application for Transfer of Physical Assets) and HUD-92476B-OHF 
(Escrow Agreement for Proceeds from Partial Release of Collateral). The 
HUD-92266-OHF form is based on an existing Office of Multifamily form, 
modified for Section 242-insured hospitals. The application collects 
the information required for OHF staff to review requests to transfer 
insured physical assets to new purchasers that will continue to hold 
the FHA-insured loan. The HUD-92476B-OHF is being added to provide an 
escrow agreement template for infrequent instances when a borrower 
sells and requests to release HUD-insured collateral. Both documents 
are based on existing versions used by the Office of Housing in other 
mortgage insurance programs but modified to appropriately reflect 
Section 242 program needs.
    HUD-9250-OHF (Funds Authorizations) will be removed from the 
collection. The document was added to Collection 2502-0602 in a prior 
submission and was based upon a similar form used for OHP's residential 
care facility program. The form has proven to be unnecessary for the 
Section 242 hospital program and will be removed.
    Thirty-five of the forty documents within the collection are being 
renewed with no operational content changes, except for updated burden 
hour estimates and additional language added to the burden statements 
to ensure that requirements under 5 CFR 1320.8(b)(3) are met. 
Additional language (specifically, the phrase ``under penalty of 
perjury'') was also added to clarify fraud warnings and certification
