The adjustments were -4,619 responses and -23,883 burden hours due to less applicants applying for Guaranteed Loans. Overall, the number of respondents decreased by 36 (14,393-14,357 (new)). The annual responses decreased by 27,500 (221,148-193,648(new) while the burden hours decreased by 55,114 (220838-165724(new). The program changes for the decrease of 22,881 responses and 32,341 hours are due to a drop in Guaranteed loans originated between the years preceding FY 2017 and FY 2020. Between FY 2016 and FY 2019, the number of Guaranteed loans originated fell by 24 percent from 10,047 to 7,611. In addition, the number of loss claims and status reports received is much lower than FY 2017. The travel times was also removed from this request. The annual responses decreased since Form FSA-2233 is no longer a separate response and the hours have been included in the revised Form FSA-2236. Also, reducing the lender reviews cut 835 annual responses from the SEL lender reviews. The burden hours decreased due to the policy change reducing SEL lender reviews and some minor rounding when we estimated the average hours for Form FSA-2211 prorated between the different lender types and applicants. The form FSA-2211 have incorporated Forms FSA-2210, “Application for EZ Guarantee” and FSA-2212, “Preferred Lender Application for Guarantee” so those forms have been removed from this collection.
