A. Need For and Use of the Information Collection

    Section 10(g)(1) of the Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act)

community investment or service that Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) 
members must meet in order to maintain access to long-term advances. 
See 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(1). In establishing these community support 
requirements for Bank members, the FHFA must take into account factors 
such as the Bank member's performance under the Community Reinvestment 
Act

[[Page 41701]]

of 1977 (CRA), 12 U.S.C. 2901, et seq., and record of lending to first-
time homebuyers. 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(2). 12 CFR part 944 implements 
section 10(g) of the Bank Act. See 12 CFR part 944. The rule provides 
uniform community support standards all Bank members must meet and 
review criteria FHFA staff must apply to determine compliance with 
section 10(g). More specifically, Sec.  944.2 of the rule (12 CFR 
944.2) implements the statutory community support requirement and 
requires each member selected for review to submit a completed 
Community Support Statement Form to the FHFA. The community support 
standards for the two statutory factors are found in Sec.  944.3 (12 
CFR 944.3)--CRA and first-time homebuyer performance--this provision 
also provides guidance to a respondent on how it may satisfy the 
standards . The procedures and criteria FHFA uses in determining 
whether Bank members satisfy the statutory and regulatory community 
support requirements are found in Sec. Sec.  944.4 and 944.5 (12 CFR 
944.4 through 944.5)
    The information collection contained in the Community Support 
Statement Form and Sec. Sec.  944.2 through 944.5 of the rule are 
necessary to enable and are used by the FHFA to determine whether Bank 
members satisfy the statutory and regulatory community support 
requirements. Only Bank members that meet these requirements may 
maintain continued access to long-term Bank advances. See 12 U.S.C. 
1430(g).
    The OMB number for the information collection is 2590-0005. The OMB 
clearance for the information collection expires on September 30, 2009. 
The likely respondents are institutions that are Bank members.

B. Burden Estimate

    The FHFA estimates the total annual average number of respondents 
at 4100 Bank members, with 1 response per member. The estimate for the 
average hours per response is one hour. The estimate for the total 
annual hour burden is 4100 hours (4100 members x 1 response per member 
x 1 hour).

C. Comment Request

    The FHFA requests written comments on the following: (1) Whether 
the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance 
of FHFA functions, including whether the information has practical 
utility; (2) The accuracy of the FHFA estimates of the burdens of the 
collection of information; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility and 
clarity of the information collected; and (4) Ways to minimize the 
burden of the collection of information, including through the use of
