Curtis, Financial Analyst, Division of Federal Home Loan Bank Regulation, by telephone at 202–408– 2866 (not a toll-free number), by electronic mail at jonathan.curtis@fhfa.gov, or by regular mail at the Federal Housing Finance Agency, 1625 Eye Street, NW., Washington, DC 20006–4001. The telephone number for the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf is 800–877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Need for and Use of the Information Collection Section 10b of the Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act) (12 U.S.C. 1430b) authorizes the Federal Home Loan Banks (Banks) to make advances under certain circumstances to certified nonmember mortgagees. The FHFA refers to nonmember mortgagees as housing associates. In order to be certified as a housing associate, an applicant must meet the eligibility requirements set forth in section 10b of the Bank Act. 12 CFR part 926 implements the statutory eligibility requirements and establishes uniform review criteria an applicant must meet in order to be certified as a housing associate by a Bank. More specifically, sections 926.3 and 926.4 (12 CFR 926.3– 926.4) implement the statutory eligibility requirements and provide guidance to an applicant on how it may satisfy such requirements. Section 926.5 (12 CFR 926.5) authorizes the Banks to approve or deny all applications for certification as a housing associate, E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1 25538 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 101 / Thursday, May 28, 2009 / Notices subject to the statutory and regulatory requirements. Section 926.6 (12 CFR 926.6) permits an applicant to appeal a Bank decision to deny certification to the FHFA. 12 CFR part 950, specifically section 950.17 (12 CFR 950.17), establishes the terms and conditions under which a Bank may make advances to a certified housing associate. Section 950.17 also imposes a continuing obligation on a housing associate to provide information necessary to determine if it remains in compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. The information collection contained in sections 926.1 through 926.6 and section 950.17 (12 CFR 926.1–926.6 and 950.17) is necessary to enable the Banks to determine whether an applicant satisfies the statutory and regulatory requirements to be certified initially and maintain its status as a housing associate eligible to receive Bank advances. The FHFA requires and uses the information collection to determine whether to uphold or overrule a Bank decision to deny housing associate certification to an applicant. The OMB control number for the information collection, which expires on June 30, 2009, is 2590–0001. The likely respondents include applicants for housing associate certification and current housing associates. B. Burden Estimate The FHFA estimates the total annual average number of applicants at one, with one response per applicant. The estimate for the average hours per application is 15 hours. The estimate for the annual hour burden for applicants is 15 hours (1 applicant × 1 response per applicant × 15 hours). The FHFA estimates the total annual average number of maintenance respondents, that is, certified housing associates, at 65, with 1 response per housing associate. The estimate for the average hours per maintenance response is one hour. The estimate for the annual hour burden for certified housing associates is 65 hours (65 certified housing associates × 1 response per associate × 1 hour). The estimate for the total annual hour burden is 80 hours (65 housing associates × 1 response per associate × 1 hour + 1 applicant × 1 response per applicant × 15 hours). C. Comment Request In accordance with 5 CFR 1320.8(d), the FHFA published a request for public comments regarding this information collection in the Federal Register on December 29, 2008.

The telephone number for the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf is 800–877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Need for and Use of the Information Collection The FHFA has authorized the Federal Home Loan Banks (Banks) to acquire mortgage loans and other assets from their members or housing associates under certain circumstances. 12 CFR part 955. The regulation refers to these assets as acquired member assets or AMA. As part of this regulatory authorization, each Bank that acquires residential mortgage loans must provide to the FHFA certain loan-level data on a quarterly basis. The reporting requirements, which previously were in 12 CFR part 955 (specifically, section 955.4 and Appendices A and B), currently are contained in the FHFA Data Reporting Manual. The FHFA uses this data to monitor the safety and soundness of the Banks and the extent to which the Banks are fulfilling their statutory housing finance mission through their AMA programs. See 12 U.S.C. 1422a(a). While the Banks provide the AMA data directly to the FHFA, each Bank initially must collect the information from the private-sector member or housing associate from which the Bank acquires the mortgage loan. Bank members and housing associates already collect the vast majority of the data the FHFA requires in order to do business with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) under regulatory requirements issued by the Department of Housing and Urban E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1

under certain circumstances to certified nonmember mortgagees. The FHFA 
refers to nonmember mortgagees as housing associates. In order to be 
certified as a housing associate, an applicant must meet the 
eligibility requirements set forth in section 10b of the Bank Act. 12 
CFR part 926 implements the statutory eligibility requirements and 
establishes uniform review criteria an applicant must meet in order to 
be certified as a housing associate by a Bank. More specifically, 
sections 926.3 and 926.4 (12 CFR 926.3-926.4) implement the statutory 
eligibility requirements and provide guidance to an applicant on how it 
may satisfy such requirements. Section 926.5 (12 CFR 926.5) authorizes

subject to the statutory and regulatory requirements. Section 926.6 (12 
CFR 926.6) permits an applicant to appeal a Bank decision to deny 
certification to the FHFA.
    12 CFR part 950, specifically section 950.17 (12 CFR 950.17), 
establishes the terms and conditions under which a Bank may make 
advances to a certified housing associate. Section 950.17 also imposes 
a continuing obligation on a housing associate to provide information 
necessary to determine if it remains in compliance with applicable 
statutory and regulatory requirements.
    The information collection contained in sections 926.1 through 
926.6 and section 950.17 (12 CFR 926.1-926.6 and 950.17) is necessary 
to enable the Banks to determine whether an applicant satisfies the 
statutory and regulatory requirements to be certified initially and 
maintain its status as a housing associate eligible to receive Bank 
advances. The FHFA requires and uses the information collection to 
determine whether to uphold or overrule a Bank decision to deny housing 
associate certification to an applicant.
    The OMB control number for the information collection, which 
expires on June 30, 2009, is 2590-0001. The likely respondents include 
applicants for housing associate certification and current housing 
associates.

B. Burden Estimate

    The FHFA estimates the total annual average number of applicants at 
one, with one response per applicant. The estimate for the average 
hours per application is 15 hours. The estimate for the annual hour 
burden for applicants is 15 hours (1 applicant x 1 response per 
applicant x 15 hours).
    The FHFA estimates the total annual average number of maintenance 
respondents, that is, certified housing associates, at 65, with 1 
response per housing associate. The estimate for the average hours per 
maintenance response is one hour. The estimate for the annual hour 
burden for certified housing associates is 65 hours (65 certified 
housing associates x 1 response per associate x 1 hour).
    The estimate for the total annual hour burden is 80 hours (65 
housing associates x 1 response per associate x 1 hour + 1 applicant x 
1 response per applicant x 15 hours).
