Abstract: Through its programs, the CDFI Fund supports financial institutions around the country that are specifically dedicated to financing and supporting community and economic development activities. This strategy builds strong institutions that make loans and investments and provide financial services in markets (including economically distressed investment areas and targeted populations) whose needs for loans, investments, and financial services have not been fully met by traditional financial institutions, particularly in the areas of promoting homeownership, developing of affordable housing, and stimulating small business development, as well as providing financial services to those who have not previously accessed financial institutions. Consistent with the Federal Acquisition Regulations provisions on conflicts of interest, the CDFI Fund has applied, and will continue to apply, a conflict of interest policy with respect to its application reviewers. This policy will prohibit reviewers from participating in the evaluation or process of selection of applications where such participation creates a conflict of interest or an appearance of a conflict of interest. The conflict of interest policy and review materials are used by the CDFI Fund to determine whether a conflict of interest or an appearance of a conflict of interest will prevent a reviewer from being assigned particular applications during the evaluation process for the CDFI Fund awards. The policy and review materials are applicable to all reviewers, including CDFI Fund staff and other federal government employees, as well as those reviewers engaged through contract with the CDFI Fund.

ADDRESSES: Written comments may be submitted through http:// www.Regulations.gov; by mail or handdelivery to the Director, Regulations Management (02REG), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420; or by fax to (202) 273–9026.

In addition, during the comment period, comments may be viewed online through the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) at http:// www.Regulations.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shayla V. Mitchell, Management and Program Analyst, Education Service (225C), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420 telephone (202) 461–1483. VA proposes to update the system location to include the location of a new facility where active educational assistance records will be housed. VA also proposes to add a routine use that will permit the disclosure of information on transferred educational assistance benefits to the individual from whom eligibility was derived, the transferor, and the individual who received the educational benefits, the transferee. VA proposes to disclose claim specific information to a transferor since the transferor may terminate, deny, suspend, add, or reduce educational benefits to an eligible dependent at any time during the individual’s eligibility period. Since both the transferor and the dependent are coequally responsible for any debt incurred by the dependent, both parties should have access to all information pertaining to such entitlement. The Privacy Act permits VA to disclose information about individuals without their consent for a routine use when the information will be used for a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which the information was collected. The report of intent to amend and an advance copy of the proposed changes have been sent to the appropriate Congressional committees and to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) (Privacy Act) and guidelines issued by OMB (65 FR 977677), December 12, 2000. The proposed new routine use numbered 65 will be added to the system of records titled ‘‘Compensation, Pension, Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Records—VA’’ (58VA21/22/28), published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 29275 (6/19/09).
