Proposed Project: The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) Program: Forms (OMB No. 0915-0034)—[Revision] Back to Top

The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) program provided federally insured loans to assure the availability of funds for loans to eligible students to pay for their education costs. In order to administer and monitor the HEAL program the following forms are utilized: The Lenders Application for Contract of Federal Loan Insurance form (used by lenders to make application to the HEAL insurance program); the Borrower's Deferment Request form (used by borrowers to request deferments on HEAL loans and used by lenders to determine borrowers' eligibility for deferment); the Borrower Loan Status update electronic submission (submitted monthly by lenders to the Secretary on the status of each loan); and the Loan Purchase/Consolidation electronic submission (submitted by lenders to the Secretary to report sales, and purchases of HEAL loans).

The annual estimate of burden is as follows:

HRSA form Number of respondents Responses per respondent Total responses Hours per responses Total burden hours
Lender's Application for Contract of Federal Loan Insurance 15 1.00 15 .13 1.95
Borrower's Deferment Request:
