SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Community Disaster Loan (CDL) Program is authorized by Section 417 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as amended, and provides loans to any local government which has suffered a substantial loss of tax or other revenues as a result of a major disaster or emergency and which demonstrates a need for Federal financial assistance in order to perform its governmental functions. FEMA regulations at 44 CFR 206.360-206.367 contain the procedures and requirements that implement the statutory authority for this program.

The title (Formerly titled Application for Community Disaster Loan (CDL) and the Special Community Disaster Loan (SCDL) Program) previously reported in the 60-Day Federal Register Notice (73 FR 76370, Dec. 16, 2008) has been changed because the Special Community Disaster Loan (SCDL) Program was only authorized to provide loans to communities affected by Hurricanes Katrina and/or Rita. The application period for that program closed at the end of fiscal year 2006 (October 1, 2006). Because FEMA is no longer accepting applications for the SCDL Program, it has been removed from this collection.
