Meeting of the National Advisory Council for Healthcare Research and Quality, 14668-14669 [2011-5891]

Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 14668 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 52 / Thursday, March 17, 2011 / Notices financial education and financial literacy outreach?’’ ‘‘(B) Which financial education efforts appear to be the most effective in bringing ‘unbanked’ individuals and families into the conventional finance system?’’ ‘‘(C) What efforts are insured institutions making at converting ‘unbanked’ money order, wire transfer, and international remittance customers into conventional account holders?’’ ‘‘(D) What cultural, language and identification issues as well as transaction costs appear to most prevent ‘unbanked’ individuals from establishing conventional accounts?’’ ‘‘(E) What is a fair estimate of the size and worth of the ‘unbanked’ market in the United States?’’ In connection with these mandated objectives, the FDIC seeks to identify and quantify the extent to which institutions serve the needs of the unbanked and underbanked; identify the characteristics of institutions that are reaching out to and serving the unbanked and underbanked; identify efforts (for example, practices, programs, alliances) of institutions to serve the unbanked and underbanked; and identify potential barriers that affect the ability of institutions to serve the unbanked and underbanked. In its inaugural survey effort, the first of its kind to be conducted at the national level, the FDIC conducted a two-pronged survey—a sample survey of FDIC-insured depository institutions and a limited number of case studies of FDIC-insured depository institutions that were employing innovative methods to serve unbanked and underbanked populations. The results of the initial survey effort, which were released in February 2009, showed that while most banks were aware of significant unbanked and underbanked populations in their areas, more could be done to reach out to these important markets. A copy of the survey findings can be accessed at the following link: http://www.fdic.gov/unbankedsurveys/. In this second Bank Survey, the FDIC proposes to survey FDIC-insured depository institutions at the headquarters and branch office level on their efforts to meet the needs of underserved populations. By so doing, the survey will provide insights into relevant headquarter strategies as well as offerings at the branch level. This approach will also enable the FDIC to analyze survey results by bank size class as well as by geographic location, including the potential to identify differentiated efforts of branch offices located in low to-moderate income areas. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:48 Mar 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The FDIC will consider all comments to determine the extent to which the proposed information collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and approval. After the comment period closes, comments will be summarized or included in the FDIC’s request to OMB for approval of the collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
