in the manual that was distributed for 2022, the date on the manual /guidance says it's from 6/21. Does that mean that there is no change to last year's guidance?

Has the meeting begun? I cannot hear anyone.

The excess cash must be sent to the Government right after you submit your AOR.
Linda Frenza
48:33
What is the purpose of asking for total indebtedness for students that received Title VII and are practicing in a rural area.
Penny James
48:35
Will someone let us know if our school will not receive new funds?
Alison Murphy
49:07
I have some questions regarding Examples of Prorating collection costs. Is the appropriate venue to ask this question, or should I direct this question to someone after the webinar?
Karen Lynch
49:35
From Karen Lynch, Tufts University regarding Excess Cash: Why are we receiving requests in February and March for Excess Cash instead of post-AOR submission? I have had to deposit University Funds into various loan programs over the year to cover deficits. Where do I report these contributions on Pages 2 and 5; where do I report the anticipated return of these funds to the University on page 5?
Laurie Dresow
49:45
Is it possible to put the informational first part into a PDF so we have access to it so we don't miss anything that you mentioned in the beginning?
ellen Spilker
49:47
you mentioned that NOAs are being sent. If we are getting a new award, when can we expect to get the NOAs
Bryan McMullin
50:02
If we are expected to only keep one year's worth of funding on hand, and we have seen a significant decrease in collections, are we supposed to loan less, or are we going to receive more funding?
Beth Lerman
50:31
I have a question regarding issuance of federal tax forms to borrowers if the school has to pay off an uncollectible loan from a borrower (i.e. if it is not approved by HRSA for cancellation). Is this the appropriate venue for this question?
Yu Li
50:57
is there any significant change in this year's AOR that is different from last year?
arlyn villaruz
52:01
Line H is the projection of expenditures for 7/1/22 thru 6/30/23 (current fiscal year). Why is there a line to project an extra Year (7/1/23-6/30/24) if we are not allowed to project no more than one year?
Juan Gordon
52:01
For those grantee who are experience a decrease in Federal funding you should develop a action plan submit it to your assigned Project Officer and we will consider the funds on hand for projected use and or retainment.
Jaime Schulang
52:37
Our alumni office does not have complete information about the employment of our graduates. How are we supposed to report indebtedness based on employment in rural areas?
Patricia Donahue
52:42
When are the notices of funding sent out to schools?
LaVerne Walker
52:44
Is there any place on the AOR you want to discontinue participating in the program?
Juan Gordon
53:53
Notice of Funding (NOA) will be disbursed around the 3rd week in July 2022.
Deidre Rush-UIC
54:10
Have the technical issues related to accessing reports been resolved, I had to seek assistance from my HRSA contact to gain access to 1 of 2 missing report ( reports were not visible in the HRSA portal). I am still awaiting access to my other report I am concerned because the deadline is 8/15
ellen Spilker
54:14
the AOR Guidance you sent is dated 6/21. Is that correct?
Juan Gordon
54:57
If you want to discontinue a program at your school please submit a letter on letter head to your assigned Project Officer and the PO will provide further instructions.
Linda Frenza
55:16
is the indebtedness from just the university that awarded the loan or is it for all other universities that the student attended?
Alyssa McLellan
57:03
Is there guidance for what Congress considers to be "rural" and/or a source of uniform definitions related to the information their requesting that we gather from students?
Roberta Penz
57:05
If we request the information for the workplace for the graduates, but the graduates do not respond, how do complete the AOR questions? NA? no response?
Hai Le
58:05
The AOR Guidance dated 6/21 is correct because we don't have any changes in the AOR this year, just have dates updated.
Beth Lerman
01:01:45
The follow up to the tax question is about whether we need to issue a tax form to the borrower
Leslie Kaelin
01:02:39
Are other schools having difficulty awarding PCL because Direct Loans (Dept. of Education) have been interest free since March 2020 and looks like that may continue (who knows how long)? Also no PSLF with PCL loans. Maybe things will pick up for PCL if the Direct Loans start having interest???
Beth Lerman
01:02:51
Specifically, do we have to issue a federal 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt, tax form to a borrower if the school has paid for this loan
Penny James
01:02:58
If the AOR shows we have excess cash but we have already committed that to students for the fall semester, will we still be required to return funds or will we be allowed to keep funds to cover commitments for the upcoming year?
Patricia Donahue
01:03:22
Due to the pandemic, we have had a hard time collecting the information from graduates. Is there flexibility with these questions due to COVID?
Tinika Mayo
01:04:01
Penny, you can submit an action to your project officer of the program in questions if returning the excess cash will cause you to not be able to fulfill your committed loans.
Tinika Mayo
01:06:19
Patricia, we ask that you try your best to collect this information. If you do find yourself having a difficult time and do not have this information available at the time of the AOR submission, please indicate this on the AOR in the explanation box of those particular questions.
Shannon Hadding
01:08:08
If a loan is not repaid within the 10 year repayment period, due to HRSA allowing forbearances due to COVID, then does the school have additional time to collect those funds, or are we still required to buy back the loan at the end of the 10 year period?
Tinika Mayo
01:08:58
EHB Help Desk Number - 877-Go4-HRSA
arlyn villaruz
01:14:55
Has the forbearance of interest on HRSA LOANS been extended past 5/1/2022 (due to COVD), to mirror the loans owned by the Dept of Ed where there is a pause on interest thru 8/31/22?
Bridget Curl
01:18:27
Why do NOA's not go out until July? If schools want to utilize funds for recruitment for the upcoming year, wouldn't earlier notice be better?
Tinika Mayo

arlyn villaruz
01:19:50
Is there a listserv for schools who manage HRSA funds?
LaVerne Walker
01:20:02
Sorry, I may miss the answer to my question - Is there a place on the AOR if you want to discontinue participating in the program?
Beth Lerman
01:20:39
Wait -- one more question -- our loan servicer had heard from someone at HRSA that the forbearance and interest pause is definitely being extended after May 1st, 2022. They did not resume billing our borrowers based on this information. If this is not approved, are we, as the school, on the hook for these payments that were not collected by our servicer?
Hai Le
01:20:42
Laverne, please contact your program officer if you want to discontinue your program.
Amanda Mitchell
01:21:02
We answered the AOR last year accurately that there was not a current need for additional funding because there was not student interest at the time so we did not request additional funding. Will HRSA look at removing the check mark on the AOR to request additional funding for the following year to allow schools that see an increase in interest of the loan to be able to request additional awards?
LaVerne Walker
01:21:13
@Hai Lee -thanks
Hai Le
01:21:22
You are welcome.
Tinika Mayo
01:21:42
Laverne, you can make comments on the AOR in addition, you will need to submit a letter on your schools letterhead, signed by an authorizing official indicating that you would like to close your program.
Erika Thurman
01:25:39
We received an email from ECSI saying that the extension would be granted through 8/31/2022.
Donna Zacher
01:26:11
If you need to request corrections to your AOR for cash on hand should we try to make correction for this year or next year.
Lisa Arnold
01:26:13
We heard the same from ECSI.
Beth Lerman
01:26:23
Yes -- ECSI is the same servicer that we use for our loans, and this is what we received from them
Shannon Hadding
01:27:00
ECSI based this decision on the NFLP Second Quarter Technical Assistance Webinar presented by HRSA employees on May 4, 2022.
Erika Thurman

ECSI said it was from the NFLP Second Quarter Technical Assistance webinar presented by HRSA on May 4, 2022.
