Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for 
Three Years, Without Revision, of the Following Report

    Report title: Notifications Related to Community Development and 
Public Welfare Investments of State Member Banks.
    Agency form number: FR H-6.
    OMB control number: 7100-0278.
    Frequency: Event-generated.
    Respondents: State member banks.
    Estimated number of respondents: Post Notification, 20; Application 
(Prior Approval), 71; and Extension of divestiture period, 1.
    Estimated average hours per response: Post Notification, 2 hours; 
Application (Prior Approval) 5 hours; and Extension of divestiture 
period, 5 hours.
    Estimated annual burden hours: Post Notification, 40 hours; 
Application (Prior Approval) 355 hours; and Extension of divestiture 
period, 5 hours.
    General Description of Report: Regulation H requires state member 
banks planning to make community development or public welfare 
investments to comply with the Regulation H notification requirements: 
(1) If the investment does not require prior Board approval, a written 
notice must be sent to the appropriate Federal Reserve Bank; (2) if 
certain criteria are not met, and the investment requires prior Board 
approval, a request for approval must be sent to the appropriate 
Federal Reserve Bank; and, (3) if the Board orders divestiture, but the 
bank cannot divest within the established time limit, a request or 
requests for extension of the divestiture period must be submitted to 
the appropriate Federal Reserve Bank.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the public welfare investment notice, request for 
approval, and request for extension of the divestiture period are 
authorized by the Federal Reserve Act, (12 U.S.C. 338a), and by the 
Board's Regulation H, (12 CFR 208.22). The obligation of state member 
banks to make public welfare investments under both the Reserve Bank 
post-notice and the Board's prior approval procedure is mandatory. The 
request for extension of the divestiture period is required to obtain a 
benefit. Individual respondent data generally are not regarded as 
confidential. However, a bank that submits confidential proprietary 
information may request confidential treatment of that information 
pursuant to section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Such a determination would be made on a case-by-case 
basis in response to a specific request for disclosure. If examination 
ratings are included in a submission, those will be considered 
confidential under exemption 8 of the FOIA, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)).
    Consultation outside the agency: Given that most community 
development entities obtain funding from a variety of local and 
regional financial institutions, Board staff consults with other 
agencies' staff to discuss applications relating to such investments, 
as appropriate.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, August 8,
