Proposed Project: The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) Program Regulations (OMB No. 0915-0108) Extension

The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) Program has regulations that contain notification, reporting and recordkeeping requirements to insure that the lenders, holders and schools participating in the HEAL program follow sound management procedures in the administration of federally-insured student loans. While the regulatory requirements are approved under the OMB number referenced above, much of the burden associated with the regulations is cleared under separate OMB numbers for the HEAL forms and electronic submissions used to report required information. The table below provides the estimate of burden for the remaining regulations.

The estimates of burden are as follows:
