The Development Loan Fund was established as a corporation by the Mutual Security Act of 1958 to extend loans, credits, and guarantees to American or foreign individuals, businesses, financial institutions, or foreign governments in order to provide capital for projects and programs contributing to the economic growth of friendly less-developed countries.
Under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, the Development Loan Fund Corporation was abolished and its functions were transferred, effective November 3, 1961, to the Agency for International Development. Subsequent to that date, the Fund has remained open for the purpose of liquidating outstanding obligations. As of June 30, 1967, the undisbursed loan agreements amounted to $108 million. It is estimated that this balance will decrease to $56.3 million in 1968 and to $8.5 million in 1969.
Loan repayments and interest earned totaled $158.8 million in 1967 and are scheduled to total $149.6 million in 1968 and $151.5 million in 1969.

1 The changes in these items are reflected on the program and financing schedule.
Prior to 1967, capitalized interest has been recorded as deferred interest receivables. Effective 1967, interest capitalized during the year is recorded as an obligation to loans receivable. Adjusting entry is made in 1967 to transfer the cumulative balances as of June 30, 1966, to loans receivable.

? Effective 1967, accounting for this fund was changed from cash to cost accrual. Adjustment is necessary to reflect that $3,674 thousand in fees received in 1966 are applicable to the 1967 period. The remaining balance of $1,040 thousand is a regular adjustment to fee income overstated in the prior year.
Guarantee programs encourage and facilitate private U.S. investments abroad which further the economic progress of developing countries. Guarantees are available only for new investments.
Three investment guarantee programs are authorized:
1. Specific political risk guarantees against (a) inconvertibility of foreign currency, (b) loss by expropriation or confiscation, and (c) loss due to war, revolution, or insurrection;
2. Extended risk guarantees which cover up to 75% of both political and business risks; and
3. Extended risk guarantees covering up to 100% of losses on certain housing projects and investments in credit unions,
Except for Latin America housing guarantees, guarantees are available only for investment in countries whose governments have agreed with the United States to institute the investment guarantee program, and where there are suitable arrangements to protect the interests of the U.S. Government in connection with assets or claims acquired as a result of having provided relief under a guarantee. Agreements have been signed with 80 developing countries.
As of June 30, 1967, this program had total unused reserves of $297,043,569. Included in this total was $199,071,521 in borrowing authority to expend from public debt receipts. The borrowing authority provision was rescinded by action of the 90th Congress. As a result, the reserves to be continued available from 1967 have been reduced to $97,972,048. Since all guarantees are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States, this revised amount is expected to suffice to handle any claims that might reasonably be anticipated to mature before a supplemental appropriation could be obtained from the Congress to restore the liquidity of the program.
Specific risk.-As of June 30, 1967, the ceiling on guarantee issuing authority was $7 billion; an increase to $8 billion was authorized in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1967 for 1968; a further increase to $9 billion is requested for 1969.
Extended risk.-As of June 30, 1967, the ceiling was $375 million; this was increased to $475 million in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1967; a further increase of $235 million to $710 million is requested for 1969.
Latin American housing.-As of June 30, 1967, the ceiling was $450 million; in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1967 this was increased to $500 million which is considered adequate to meet any demands through 1969.
