Start Supplemental Information
On July 20, 2015, the Rural Housing Service, the Rural Business-Cooperative Service, the Rural Utilities Service, and the Farm Service Agency published an interim rule with comment in the Federal Register (80 FR 28807), “Strategic Economic and Community Development.” The interim rule identified that public comments were to be submitted by August 18, 2015. Unfortunately, the Web site Regulations.gov inadvertently closed the comment period on July 20, 2015, which was the closing date for comments on the information collection request. To compensate for closing the comment period early via the Regulations.gov Web site, this action provides commenters additional time to submit comments on the interim rule.
