Title: Community Facilities Direct Loans and Grants Processing--Consolidate Three Regulations 

The Rural Housing Service (RHS) plans to publish a final rule with comment to consolidate and update three regulations governing Community Facilities Loans and Grants programs, 7 CFR part 1942, subparts A and C, and 7 CFR part 3570, subpart B, into a new regulation, 7 CFR part 3570, subpart A. This new regulation will be used to administer the Community Facilities Direct Loan and Grant programs as well as incorporate the Tribal College and Economic Impact Initiative Grant programs. The existing regulations in 7 CFR part 1942, subparts A and C, and 7 CFR part 3570, subpart B, will be removed as obsolete. It is planned to also include language implementing the 2018 Farm Bill to include priority for projects that provide substance abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery services; and to allow as an eligible loan purpose the refinancing of certain rural hospital debt.
