This Notice invites the public to comment on the community support performance of individual members. DATES: Public comments on individual Bank members’ community support performance must be submitted to FHFA on or before March 31, 2021. ADDRESSES: Comments on members’ community support performance should be submitted to FHFA by electronic mail at hmgcommunitysupportprogram@ fhfa.gov or by fax to 202–649–4308. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Deattra Perkins, Senior Policy Analyst, at hmgcommunitysupportprogram@ fhfa.gov, Division of Housing Mission and Goals, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Ninth Floor, 400 Seventh Street SW, Washington, DC 20219. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Community Support Review Section 10(g)(1) of the Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act) requires FHFA to promulgate regulations establishing standards of community investment or service that Bank members must meet in order to maintain access to long-term Bank advances. See 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(1). The regulations promulgated by FHFA must take into account factors such as the Bank member’s performance under the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA), 12 U.S.C. 2901 et seq., and the Bank member’s record of lending to first-time homebuyers. See 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(2). Pursuant to section 10(g) of the Bank Act, FHFA has promulgated a community support requirements regulation that establishes standards a Bank member must meet in order to maintain access to long-term advances, and establishes review criteria FHFA must apply in evaluating a member’s community support performance. See 12 CFR part 1290. The regulation includes standards and criteria for the two statutory factors—members’ CRA performance and members’ record of lending to first-time homebuyers. 12 CFR 1290.3. Only members subject to the CRA must meet the CRA standard. 12 CFR 1290.3(b). All members subject to community support review, including those not subject to the CRA, must meet the first-time homebuyer standard. 12 CFR 1290.3(c). Members that have been certified as community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are deemed to be in compliance with the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:48 Feb 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 community support requirements and are not subject to periodic community support review, unless the CDFI member is also an insured depository institution or a CDFI credit union. 12 CFR 1290.2(d). In addition, FHFA will not review an institution’s community support performance until it has been a Bank member for at least one year. 12 CFR 1290.2(e). Under the regulation, FHFA reviews each applicable member once every two years. Starting April 1, 2021, each member that is subject to community support review will be required to submit a completed Community Support Statement to FHFA. All Community Support Statements for this review cycle must be submitted by October 29, 2021. FHFA will review the community support performance of each member after receiving the member’s completed Community Support Statement. II. Public Comments FHFA encourages the public to submit comments by March 31, 2021, on the community support performance of Bank members. Each Bank is required to post a notice on its public website and to notify its Advisory Council, nonprofit housing developers, community groups, and other interested parties in its district of the opportunity to submit comments on the community support programs and activities of Bank members, with the name and address of each member subject to community support review. 12 CFR 1290.2(c)(1). In reviewing a member for community support compliance, FHFA will consider any public comments it has received concerning the member. 12 CFR 1290.2(c)(3). To ensure consideration by FHFA, comments concerning the community support performance of members being reviewed in 2021 must be submitted to FHFA, either by electronic mail to hmgcommunitysupportprogram@ fhfa.gov, or by fax to 202–649–4308, on or before March 31, 2021. 12 CFR 1290.2(c)(2).

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12003 Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5. Assess information collection costs.

Background and Brief Description This information collection aims to improve our understanding of the role of influenza-like illness (ILI)-specific absenteeism in schools in predicting community-wide influenza transmission and to detect within-household transmission of influenza in households from which a student has been absent from school due to ILI. Insights gained from this information collection will be E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
