Section 1134 of the Act amended the Riegle Community Development and PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 90905 Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 (12 U.S.C. 4701, et seq.) to provide authority to the Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary) to establish and administer the CDFI Bond Guarantee Program.

Pursuant to the Regulations at 12 CFR 1808.504(c), the Guarantor may limit the number of Guarantees issued E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1
