OMB Number: 1513–0103. TTB Form Number: 5200.29. Abstract: TTB requires a corporate surety bond or a collateral bond to ensure payment of the Federal excise tax on tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes removed from the factory or warehouse. TTB F 5200.29 will satisfy all bond requirements for tobacco industry members. Manufacturers of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes and proprietors of export warehouses, along with corporate sureties, are the respondents for this form. This form reduces the number of bond forms submitted by tobacco industry members and makes the use of a single bond form consistent with all other commodities that TTB regulates. Current Actions: We are submitting this information collection as a revision to consolidate our two current tobacco bond forms, TTB F 5200.25 and TTB F 5200.26, into one form, TTB F 5200.29. This single form will be available on our Web site, and, in early 2012, tobacco industry members will be able to file this form electronically via TTB’s Permits Online (PONL) system. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 66. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 86.

Currently, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (the ‘‘CDFI Fund’’), an office within the Department of the Treasury, is soliciting comments concerning the CDFI Program Healthy Food Financing Initiative—Financial Assistance (HFFI–FA) Supplemental Questionnaire. SUMMARY: Written comments should be received on or before October 3, 2011 to be assured of consideration. ADDRESS: Direct all comments to Ruth Jaure, CDFI Program Manager, at the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund, U.S. Department of the Treasury, 601 13th Street, NW., Suite 200 South, Washington, DC 20005, by e-mail to cdfihelp@cdfi.treas.gov or by facsimile to (202) 622–7754.

Abstract: The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Program was established by the Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 to use federal resources to invest in and build the capacity of CDFIs to serve lowDATES: PO 00000 Frm 00159 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 income people and communities lacking adequate access to affordable financial products and services. Through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides: (1) Financial Assistance (FA) awards to CDFIs that have Comprehensive Business Plans for creating demonstrable community development impact through the deployment of credit, capital, and financial services within their respective Target Markets or the expansion into new Investment Areas, Low-Income Targeted Populations, or Other Targeted Populations, and (ii) Technical Assistance (TA) grants to CDFIs and entities proposing to become CDFIs in order to build their capacity to better address the community development and capital access needs of their existing or proposed Target Markets and/or to become certified CDFIs. In FY 2011, the CDFI Fund distributed a HFFI–FA Supplemental Questionnaire to FA applicants that met a minimum FA scoring threshold. The HFFI–FA Program is one component of the Federal government’s Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI). The HFFI represents the government’s first coordinated step to eliminate food deserts—urban and rural areas in the United States with limited access to affordable and nutritious food, particularly areas composed of predominantly lower-income neighborhoods and communities—by promoting a wide range of interventions that expand the supply of and demand for nutritious foods, including increasing the distribution of agricultural products; developing and equipping grocery stores and strengthening the producer-to-consumer relationship. The questions that the supplemental questionnaire contains, and the information generated thereby, will enable the Fund to evaluate applicants’ activities and determine the extent of applicants’ eligibility for a CDFI HFFI– FA award. Failure to collect this information could result in improper uses of Federal funds. Current Actions: Reinstatement with change of a previously approved collection. Type of Review: Regular Review. Affected Public: Certified CDFIs and entities seeking CDFI Certification. Estimated Number of Respondents: 50. Estimated Annual Time per Respondent: 20 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,000 hours.

All comments will become a matter of public record and may be published on the CDFI Fund Web site at http://www.cdfifund.gov. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the CDFI Fund, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the CDFI Fund’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. The CDFI Fund specifically requests comments concerning the following: (1) Whether the use of a different definition for ‘‘food deserts’’ would be more in line with CDFI activity in this area; (2) whether the use of a different definition for ‘‘healthy foods’’ is needed; (3) whether the CDFI Fund should allow for additional indicators to describe needs in an Applicant’s Target Market; (4) whether the distinct business models followed by different types of CDFIs (such as loan funds, banks, credit unions, and venture capital funds) merit individualized applications; and (5) the merit of further reducing or increasing the narrative page limits in the application.

Notice of Computer Match Program. ACTION: Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidelines on the Conduct of Matching Programs, notice is hereby given that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) intends to conduct a computer matching program with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Data from the proposed match will be used to verify the earned income of nonservice-connected veterans, and those veterans who are zero percent service-connected (noncompensable), whose eligibility for VA medical care is based on their inability to defray the cost of medical care. These veterans supply household income information that includes their spouses and dependents at the time of application for VA health care benefits. SUMMARY: Effective Date: This match will start September 6, 2011, unless comments dictate otherwise. DATES: Written comments may be submitted by mail or hand-delivery to Director, Regulations Policy and Management (02REG), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Ave., NW., Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420; fax to (202) 273–9026; e-mail through http://www.Regulations.gov. All comments received will be available for public inspection in the Office of Regulation Policy and Management, Room 1063B, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays). Please call (202) 461–4902 for an appointment (this is not a toll free number).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Veterans Affairs has statutory authorization under 38 U.S.C. 5317, 38 U.S.C. 5106, 26 U.S.C. 6103(l)(7)(D)(viii) and 5 U.S.C. 552a to establish matching agreements and request and use income information from other agencies for purposes of verification of income for determining eligibility for benefits. 38 U.S.C. 1710(a)(2)(G), 1720(a)(3), and 1710(b) identify those veterans whose basic eligibility for medical care benefits is dependent upon their financial status. Eligibility for nonservice-connected and zero percent noncompensable serviceconnected veterans is determined based on the veteran’s inability to defray the expenses for necessary care as defined in 38 U.S.C. 1722. This determination can affect their responsibility to participate in the cost of their care through copayments and their assignment to an enrollment priority group. The goal of this match is to obtain IRS unearned income information data needed for the income verification process. The VA records involved in the match are ‘‘Enrollment and Eligibility Records—VA’’ (147VA16). IRS will extract return information with respect to unearned income from the Information Return Master File (IRMF) Processing File, Treas/IRS 22.061, through the Disclosure of Information to Federal, State and Local Agencies (DIFSLA) program. A copy of this notice has been sent to both Houses of Congress and OMB. This matching agreement expires 18 months after its effective date. This match will not continue past the legislative authorized date to obtain this information. Approved. July 8, 2011. John R. Gingrich, Chief of Staff, Department of Veterans Affairs.
