Rural Housing Service Title: Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. OMB Control Number: 0575–0179. Summary of Collection: The Housing and Community Facilities Program (HCFP), hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘Agency,’’ is a credit agency for the Rural Housing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Agency offers supervised credit programs to build modest housing and essential community facilities in rural areas. This regulation prescribes the policy necessary to process Rural Housing loan guarantees to low- and moderate-income applicants. Section 517 (d) of Title V of the Housing Act of 1949, as amended, provides the authority for the Secretary of Agriculture to issue loan guarantees for the acquisition of new or existing dwellings and related facilities to provide decent, safe, and sanitary living conditions and other structures in rural areas. The purpose of the Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program (SFHGLP) is to assist low and moderateincome individuals and families in acquiring or constructing a single-family residence in designated rural areas with loans originated and serviced by private lenders. Eligibility for this program includes very low, low, and moderateincome families or persons whose income does not exceed 115 percent of the median income for the area, as determined by the Secretary. Need and Use of the Information: Information is collected from both a potential homebuyer and lender. To participate in the program, lenders must submit to standards which ensure the loan objectives of the SFHGLP are met. The lender submits qualifications to the Agency and enters into an agreement that outlines both the lender and Agency’s commitments and responsibilities under the guaranteed program. Information from a homebuyer includes financial documents such as confirmation of household income, assets and liabilities, a credit record, evidence the homebuyer has adequate repayment ability for the loan amount requested and if the condition and location of the property meet program guidelines. All information collected is vital for the Agency to determine if PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 borrowers qualify for all assistance for which they are eligible.

OMB Number: 0563–0069. Type of Request: Renewal and Revision of current Information Collection. Abstract: The Federal Crop Insurance Act (Act), Title 7 U.S.C. Chapter 36, Section 1508(k), authorizes the FCIC to provide reinsurance to insurers approved by FCIC that insure producers of any agricultural commodity under one or more plans acceptable to FCIC. The Act also states that the reinsurance shall be provided on such terms and conditions as the Board may determine to be consistent with subsections (b) and (c) of this section and sound reinsurance principles. FCIC executes the same form of reinsurance agreement, called the VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:25 Dec 10, 2020 Jkt 253001 Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA), with fourteen participating insurers approved for the 2021 reinsurance year. Appendix I of the SRA, Regulatory Duties and Responsibilities, sets forth the company’s responsibilities as required by statute. Appendix I includes; a) Conflict of Interest data collection, which in addition to the insurance companies reinsured by FCIC, encompasses the insurance companies’ employees and their contracted agents and loss adjusters; and b) Controlled Business data collection from all employed or contracted agents. Appendix II of the SRA, the Plan of Operations (Plan), sets forth the information the insurer is required to file with RMA for each reinsurance year they wish to participate. The Plan’s information enables RMA to evaluate the insurer’s financial and operational capability to deliver the crop insurance program in accordance with the Act. Estimated premiums by fund by state, and retained percentages along with current policyholders surplus are used in calculations to determine whether to approve the insurer’s requested maximum reinsurable premium volume for the reinsurance year per 7 CFR 400 Subpart L. This information has a direct effect upon the insurer’s amount of retained premium and associated liability and is required to calculate the insurer’s underwriting gain or loss. Appendix IV of the SRA, Quality Control and Program Integrity, establishes the minimum annual agent and loss adjuster training requirements, and quality control review procedures and performance standards required of the insurance companies. FCIC requires each insurer to submit, for each reinsurance year, a Quality Control Report to FCIC containing details of the results of their completed reviews. The insurance companies must also provide an annual Training and Performance Evaluation Report which details the evaluation of each agent and loss adjuster and reports of any remedial actions taken by the Company to correct any error or omission or ensure compliance with the SRA. The submission of these reports is included in Appendix II. FCIC is requesting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to extend the approval of this information collection for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public concerning the continuation of the current information collection activity as associated with the SRA in effect for the 2021 and subsequent reinsurance years.

states that the reinsurance shall be provided on such terms and

(b) and (c) of this section and sound reinsurance principles.
    FCIC executes the same form of reinsurance agreement, called the 
Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA), with fourteen participating 
insurers approved for the 2021 reinsurance year. Appendix I of the SRA, 
Regulatory Duties and Responsibilities, sets forth the company's 
responsibilities as required by statute. Appendix I includes; a) 
Conflict of Interest data collection, which in addition to the 
insurance companies reinsured by FCIC, encompasses the insurance

The insurance companies must also provide an annual Training and 
Performance Evaluation Report which details the evaluation of each 
agent and loss adjuster and reports of any remedial actions taken by 
the Company to correct any error or omission or ensure compliance with 
the SRA. The submission of these reports is included in Appendix II.
