ACTION: Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). AGENCY: The Rural BusinessCooperative Service (RBCS), a Rural Development agency of the United States Department of Agriculture SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:07 May 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 (USDA), announces that in response to the national COVID–19 Public Health Emergency, USDA Rural Development was provided additional funding assistance of $20,500,000 in budget authority appropriated under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The Business and Industry (B&I) Guaranteed Loan Program is administered through RBCS. DATES: Applications will be accepted beginning on May 22, 2020 and must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on September 15, 2021, or until funds are expended.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Congressional Review Act Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801), the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget designated this action as a major rule, as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2) because this action will result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more. However, notwithstanding 5 U.S.C. 801, section 808(2) of the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 808(2)) permits that if any rule which an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure thereon would be impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, shall take effect at such time that the Agency determines. USDA has determined, under section 808(2), that making these funds available through the issuance of this NOFA, as authorized in Division B, Title I of the CARES Act, supplements existing authority implemented in 7 CFR part 4279, subparts A and B, and 7 CFR part 4287, subpart B, and find good cause that notice and public procedure would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest, in light of the national COVID–19 Public Health Emergency. Such finding is made because withholding these funds would unduly delay the provision of PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31139 emergency benefits under the CARES Act, which Congress intended to provide expeditious relief to address the current economic conditions arising from the COVID–19 emergency.
