End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Regulations for these programs are at 7 CFR part 1703, subpart B. The maximum loan and grant awards are determined in accordance with 7 CFR 1703.28. The maximum loan and grant awards are calculated at 3.0 percent of the projected program levels, rounded to the nearest $10,000; however, as specified in 7 CFR 1703.28(b), regardless of the projected total amount that will be available, the maximum size may not be lower than $200,000. The projected program level during FY 2007 for zero-interest loans is $34,652,000, and the projected level for grants is $10,000,000. Applying the 3.0 percent to the program level for loans, rounded to the nearest $10,000, results in a Start Printed Page 71129projected maximum loan award of $1,040,000. Applying the specified 3.0 percent to the program level for grants results in an amount higher than $200,000. Therefore, the projected grant award for FY 2007 is $300,000. This notice will be amended should funding in excess of the projected levels be received.
