Proposed Project

    Grants for Hospital Construction and Modernization--Federal Right 
of Recovery and Waiver of Recovery (42 CFR 124, Subpart H) (OMB No. 
0915-0099)--Extension, no change--The regulation known as ``Federal 
Right of Recovery and Waiver of Recovery'', provides a means for the 
Federal Government to recover grant funds and a method of calculating 
interest when a grant-assisted facility under Title VI and XVI is sold 
or leased, or there is a change in use of the facility. It also allows 
for a waiver of the right of recovery under certain circumstances. 
Facilities are required to provide written notice to the Federal 
Government when such a change occurs, and to provide copies of sales 
contracts, lease agreements, estimates of current assets and 
liabilities, value of equipment, expected value of land on the new 
owner's books and remaining depreciation for all fixed assets involved 
in the transactions, and other information and documents pertinent to 
the change of status.
