Typically, information about where a fund’s investments are expected to be made or targeted will be found in the fund’s prospectus, or other documents provided by the fund prior to or at the time of the institution’s investment, and the institution, at its option, may provide such documentation in connection with its CRA evaluation. Nationwide funds are important sources of investments in low- and moderate-income and underserved communities throughout the country and can be an efficient vehicle for institutions in making qualified investments that help meet community development needs. Nationwide funds may be suitable investment opportunities, particularly for large financial institutions with a nationwide branch footprint. Other financial institutions, including those with a nationwide business focus, may find such funds to be efficient investment vehicles to help meet community development needs in their assessment area(s) or the broader statewide or regional area that includes their assessment area(s). Prior to investing in such a fund, an institution should consider reviewing the fund’s investment record to see if it is generally consistent with the institution’s investment goals and the geographic considerations in the regulations. Examiners will consider investments in nationwide funds that benefit the institution’s assessment area(s). Examiners will also consider investments in nationwide funds that benefit the broader statewide or regional area that includes the institution’s assessment area(s) consistent with the treatment detailed in Q&A § l.12(h)–6.

Proposed Project Evaluation of the National Tobacco Prevention and Control Public Education Campaign (OMB No. 0920– 0923, exp. 4/30/2014)—Revision— National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requests a two-year Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to conduct a Web-based longitudinal study of smokers and nonsmokers in the U.S. This study will be fielded for purposes of evaluating the CDC’s National Tobacco Prevention and Control Public Education Campaign (The Campaign) and monitoring its longer term impact. We will conduct 5 survey waves of data collection among E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 20, 2013 / Notices smokers and nonsmokers to facilitate repeated measures on outcomes relevant to the evaluation. Information will be collected about smokers’ and nonsmokers’ awareness of and exposure to specific campaign advertisements, knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs related to smoking and secondhand smoke. The surveys will also measure behaviors related to smoking cessation (among the smokers in the sample) and behaviors related to non-smokers’ encouragement of smokers to quit smoking and recommendations of cessation services. Data from these surveys will be used to examine the statistical relationships between exposure to The Campaign and changes in outcome variables relevant to the evaluation. This approach builds on previous phases of The Campaign and the evaluations of those phases. This study will rely on Web surveys to be self-administered at home on personal computers. Specifically, we will conduct a multi-wave longitudinal study of smokers (5 waves) and nonsmokers (4 waves) to facilitate repeated measures on outcomes related to the evaluation and to the work of CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health. The wave 1 survey will be fielded in early 2014, upon OMB approval. Participants who complete the wave 1 survey will be surveyed again in a follow-up survey approximately three months later. Subsequent follow-up surveys (3 for smokers, 2 for nonsmokers) will occur periodically after the initial wave 1 and wave 2 surveys to assess long-term, lasting impacts of The Campaign. One of the primary purposes of the subsequent follow-up surveys will be to track longer-term cigarette abstinence among smokers who initially report quitting as a result of The Campaign. This will be essential to properly estimating the impact of The Campaign on long-term successful quitting. Tracking of longer term abstinence will require assessment of use of different products over time. In addition, the three additional follow-up surveys may include additional survey items on other topics of interest to the CDC and its stakeholders, including more in-depth information on marketing exposure and use of cigars, noncombustible tobacco products, and other emerging trends in tobacco use including electronic delivery devices (e.g., e-cigarettes). It is important to evaluate The Campaign in a context that assesses the dynamic nature of tobacco product marketing and uptake of various tobacco products as these can impact the success of The Campaign in motivating long-term quitting. Therefore, it may be necessary in the future to make additional requests to OMB for changes in the planned followup instruments to re-balance the content 69681 of the surveys to reflect these and other emerging trends in the tobacco product environment. The sample for this study will originate from two sources: (1) A new online longitudinal cohort of smokers and nonsmokers, sampled randomly from postal mailing addresses in the U.S. using address based sampling (ABS) methods; and (2) the existing GfK KnowledgePanel, an established longterm online panel of U.S. adults. The new ABS-sourced longitudinal cohort will consist of smokers and nonsmokers who have not previously participated in any established online panels. This new cohort will be recruited by GfK, utilizing identical recruitment methods that are used in the recruitment of KnowledgePanel. The GfK KnowledgePanel will be used in combination with the new ABS-sourced cohort to support larger sample sizes that will allow for more in-depth subgroup analysis, which is a key objective of the CDC. All online surveys, regardless of sample source, will be conducted via the GfK KnowledgePanel Web portal for self-administered surveys. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
