Its long-term vision is to economically empower America’s underserved and distressed communities. The purpose of the Community Development Financial Institutions Program (CDFI Program) is to promote economic revitalization and community development through investment in and assistance to Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). Under the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, equity investments and deposits to CDFIs selected through a merit-based application process. The CDFI Fund provides financial assistance to CDFIs to enhance their ability to make loans and investments, and to provide related services for the benefit of designated investment areas, targeted populations, or both. In addition, through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides technical assistance grants to CDFIs and entities that propose to become CDFIs, for the purpose of increasing their capacity to serve their target markets. The CDFI Fund is amending its regulations regarding the financial reporting requirements for non-profit organizations. The regulatory change requires CDFI Program awardees that are non-profit organizations to provide audited financial statements within 180 days after the end of the awardee’s fiscal year end.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The CDFI Fund was established as a wholly owned government corporation by the Community Development Banking and Financial Institutions Act of 1994, as amended (12 U.S.C. 4701 et seq.) (the Act). Subsequent legislation placed the CDFI Fund within the Department of the Treasury and gave the Secretary of the Treasury all powers and rights of the Administrator of the CDFI Fund as set forth in the Act. The CDFI Fund’s programs are designed to facilitate the flow of lending and investment capital to distressed communities and to individuals who have been unable to take full advantage of the financial services industry. Access to credit, investment capital, and financial services are essential ingredients for creating and retaining jobs, developing affordable housing, E:\FR\FM\31OCR1.SGM 31OCR1 65152 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 211 / Thursday, October 31, 2013 / Rules and Regulations wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES revitalizing neighborhoods, unleashing the economic potential of small businesses, and empowering people. The CDFI Fund was established to promote economic revitalization and community development through, among other things, investment in and assistance to CDFIs, which specialize in serving underserved markets and the people who live there. CDFIs—while highly effective—are typically small in scale and often have difficulty raising the capital needed to meet the demands for their products and services. Through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides CDFIs with financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, equity investments, and deposits in order to enhance their ability to make loans and investments, and provide services for the benefit of designated investment areas, targeted populations or both. Additionally, many CDFIs are in formation or in the early stages of development in many markets underserved by traditional financial institutions, including rural and Native American communities. The CDFI Program assists such entities—as well as established CDFIs—by providing grants through which they may acquire technical assistance to build their capacity to serve their target markets. Applicants participate in the CDFI Program through a merit-based qualitative application and selection process in which the CDFI Fund makes funding decisions based on preestablished evaluation criteria. An entity generally receives financial assistance monies from the CDFI Fund only after being certified as a CDFI and entering into an assistance agreement with the CDFI Fund. These assistance agreements include performance goals, matching funds requirements and reporting requirements. On December 13, 2005, the CDFI Fund published in the Federal Register a revised interim rule (70 FR 73887) implementing the CDFI Program (the current rule). Current Financial Reporting Requirements for Non-Profit Organizations Part 1805 of the CDFI Fund regulations (12 CFR part 1805) sets forth the requirements under the Act for Data Collection and Reporting by CDFI Program awardees. Section 1805.804(e)(1) (12 CFR 1805.804(e)(1)) states that all non-profit organizations must submit to the CDFI Fund financial statements that have been reviewed by an independent certified public accountant in accordance with standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:19 Oct 30, 2013 Jkt 232001 Accountants, no later than 180 days after the end of the Awardee’s fiscal year; and that audited financial statements can be provided by the due date in lieu of reviewed statements, if available. Statutory Financial Reporting Requirements for CDFI Program Awardees The Act requires the CDFI Fund to ensure that each CDFI Program awardee (other than an insured CDFI or depository institution holding company) submit, not less than once during each 18-month period, a statement of financial condition audited by an independent certified public accountant as part of the awardee’s annual report to the CDFI Fund required by section 4714(e)(1) of the Act. Conforming CDFI Program Regulations to the Act The CDFI Program Regulations currently permit non-profit CDFI awardees to submit financial statements that are reviewed but not audited by independent certified public accounts as part of their annual report to the CDFI Fund. This was done in part out of a recognition of the cost and time constraints non-profit awardees face in obtaining audited financial statements within the allotted 180-day period following the end of their fiscal year. The CDFI Fund is issuing this interim rule to conform the regulatory reporting requirements to the requirements of the Act. Regulatory Analysis and Notices Executive Order 12866 It has been determined that this final rule is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. Regulatory Flexibility Act Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) or any other law, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply. Paperwork Reduction Act The collections of information contained in this interim rule have been previously reviewed and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and assigned OMB Control Numbers 1559– 0006, 1559–0021, and 1559–0022. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid control number PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 assigned by OMB. This document restates the collections of information without substantive change. National Environmental Policy Act This interim rule has been reviewed in accordance with 12 CFR part 1815. The CDFI Fund’s Environmental Regulations under the National Environmental Protection Act of 1969 (NEPA) require that the CDFI Fund adequately consider the cumulative impact proposed activities have upon the human environment. It is the determination of the CDFI Fund that the interim rule does not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and, in accordance with the NEPA and the CDFI Fund Environmental Quality Regulations, 12 CFR part 1815, neither an Environmental Assessment nor an Environmental Impact Statement is required. Administrative Procedure Act Because this interim rule relates to loans and grants, notice and public procedure and a delayed effective date are not required pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2).

The proposed Learjet Model 45 avionics architecture is new and novel for commercial transport airplanes by allowing connection to airplane electronic systems and networks, and access from aircraft external sources (e.g., wireless devices, Internet connectivity) to the previously isolated airplane electronic assets. Learjet’s proposed design is considered by the FAA to be an architecture which introduces potential security risks and vulnerabilities not addressed in current regulations and aircraft-level or system-level safety assessment methods.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The CDFI Fund was established as a wholly owned government 
corporation by the Community Development Banking and Financial 
Institutions Act of 1994, as amended (12 U.S.C. 4701 et seq.) (the 
Act). Subsequent legislation placed the CDFI Fund within the Department 
of the Treasury and gave the Secretary of the Treasury all powers and 
rights of the Administrator of the CDFI Fund as set forth in the Act.
    The CDFI Fund's programs are designed to facilitate the flow of 
lending and investment capital to distressed communities and to 
individuals who have been unable to take full advantage of the 
financial services industry. Access to credit, investment capital, and 
financial services are essential ingredients for creating and retaining 
jobs, developing affordable housing,

revitalizing neighborhoods, unleashing the economic potential of small 
businesses, and empowering people.
    The CDFI Fund was established to promote economic revitalization 
and community development through, among other things, investment in 
and assistance to CDFIs, which specialize in serving underserved 
markets and the people who live there. CDFIs--while highly effective--
are typically small in scale and often have difficulty raising the 
capital needed to meet the demands for their products and services. 
Through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides CDFIs with financial 
assistance in the form of grants, loans, equity investments, and 
deposits in order to enhance their ability to make loans and 
investments, and provide services for the benefit of designated 
investment areas, targeted populations or both. Additionally, many 
CDFIs are in formation or in the early stages of development in many 
markets underserved by traditional financial institutions, including 
rural and Native American communities. The CDFI Program assists such 
entities--as well as established CDFIs--by providing grants through 
which they may acquire technical assistance to build their capacity to 
serve their target markets. Applicants participate in the CDFI Program 
through a merit-based qualitative application and selection process in 
which the CDFI Fund makes funding decisions based on pre-established 
evaluation criteria. An entity generally receives financial assistance 
monies from the CDFI Fund only after being certified as a CDFI and 
entering into an assistance agreement with the CDFI Fund. These 
assistance agreements include performance goals, matching funds 
requirements and reporting requirements.
    On December 13, 2005, the CDFI Fund published in the Federal 
Register a revised interim rule (70 FR 73887) implementing the CDFI 
Program (the current rule).

Current Financial Reporting Requirements for Non-Profit Organizations

    Part 1805 of the CDFI Fund regulations (12 CFR part 1805) sets 
forth the requirements under the Act for Data Collection and Reporting 
by CDFI Program awardees. Section 1805.804(e)(1) (12 CFR 
1805.804(e)(1)) states that all non-profit organizations must submit to 
the CDFI Fund financial statements that have been reviewed by an 
independent certified public accountant in accordance with standards 
issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, no 
later than 180 days after the end of the Awardee's fiscal year; and 
that audited financial statements can be provided by the due date in 
lieu of reviewed statements, if available.
Statutory Financial Reporting Requirements for CDFI Program Awardees
    The Act requires the CDFI Fund to ensure that each CDFI Program 
awardee (other than an insured CDFI or depository institution holding 
company) submit, not less than once during each 18-month period, a 
statement of financial condition audited by an independent certified 
public accountant as part of the awardee's annual report to the CDFI 
Fund required by section 4714(e)(1) of the Act.
Conforming CDFI Program Regulations to the Act
    The CDFI Program Regulations currently permit non-profit CDFI 
awardees to submit financial statements that are reviewed but not 
audited by independent certified public accounts as part of their 
annual report to the CDFI Fund. This was done in part out of a 
recognition of the cost and time constraints non-profit awardees face 
in obtaining audited financial statements within the allotted 180-day 
period following the end of their fiscal year. The CDFI Fund is issuing 
this interim rule to conform the regulatory reporting requirements to 
the requirements of the Act.

Regulatory Analysis and Notices

Executive Order 12866

    It has been determined that this final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a 
regulatory assessment is not required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required under the 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) or any other law, the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The collections of information contained in this interim rule have 
been previously reviewed and approved by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and 
assigned OMB Control Numbers 1559-0006, 1559-0021, and 1559-0022. An 
agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid 
control number assigned by OMB. This document restates the collections 
of information without substantive change.

National Environmental Policy Act

    This interim rule has been reviewed in accordance with 12 CFR part 
1815. The CDFI Fund's Environmental Regulations under the National 
Environmental Protection Act of 1969 (NEPA) require that the CDFI Fund 
adequately consider the cumulative impact proposed activities have upon 
the human environment. It is the determination of the CDFI Fund that 
the interim rule does not constitute a major federal action 
significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and, in 
accordance with the NEPA and the CDFI Fund Environmental Quality 
Regulations, 12 CFR part 1815, neither an Environmental Assessment nor 
an Environmental Impact Statement is required.

Administrative Procedure Act

    Because this interim rule relates to loans and grants, notice and 
public procedure and a delayed effective date are not required pursuant 
to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2).

States, Local Governments and Non-Profit Organizations, must also
