Agency form number: FR 4027. OMB control number: 7100–0327. Frequency: As needed. Respondents: U.S. bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, state member banks, Edge Act and agreement corporations, and the U.S. operations of foreign banks with a branch, agency, or commercial lending company subsidiary in the United States (collectively, banking organizations). Estimated number of respondents: One-time implementation, large institutions: 1; one-time implementation, small institutions: 1; ongoing maintenance: 5,259. Estimated average hours per response: One-time implementation, large institutions: 480; one-time implementation, small institutions: 80; ongoing maintenance: 40. Estimated annual burden hours: Onetime implementation, large institutions: 480; one-time implementation, small institutions: 80; ongoing maintenance: 210,360. General description of report: The Guidance on Sound Incentive Compensation Policies (the Guidance) is an interagency publication promulgated by the Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that is intended to assist banking organizations in designing and implementing incentive compensation arrangements that do not encourage imprudent risk-taking and that are consistent with the safety and soundness of the organization. The Guidance contains voluntary recordkeeping activities. The Guidance is based on three key principles. These principles provide that incentive compensation arrangements at a banking organization should: 1. Provide employees incentives that appropriately balance risk and reward; 2. Be compatible with effective controls and risk-management; and 3. Be supported by strong corporate governance, including active and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 Aug 31, 2021 Jkt 253001 effective oversight by the organization’s board of directors. The recordkeeping provisions of the Guidance are contained within principles 2 and 3. Principle 2—Compatibility With Effective Controls and Risk Management Pursuant to Principle 2 of the Guidance, a banking organization’s riskmanagement processes and internal controls should reinforce and support the development and maintenance of balanced incentive compensation arrangements. Principle 2 states that banking organizations should create and maintain sufficient documentation to permit an audit of the organization’s processes for establishing, modifying, and monitoring incentive compensation arrangements. Additionally, global systemically important bank holding companies and banking organizations subject to Category II–IV enhanced prudential standards under Regulation YY and foreign banking organizations required to form an intermediate holding company under Regulation YY should maintain policies and procedures that (1) identify and describe the role(s) of the personnel, business units, and control units authorized to be involved in the design, implementation, and monitoring of incentive compensation arrangements, (2) identify the source of significant risk-related inputs into these processes and establish appropriate controls governing the development and approval of these inputs to help ensure their integrity, and (3) identify the individual(s) and control unit(s) whose approval is necessary for the establishment of new incentive compensation arrangements or modification of existing arrangements. Principle 3—Strong Corporate Governance Pursuant to Principle 3 of the Guidance, banking organizations should have strong and effective corporate governance to help ensure sound compensation practices. Principle 3 states that a banking organization’s board of directors should approve and document any material exceptions or adjustments to the organization’s incentive compensation arrangements established for senior executives. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The recordkeeping provisions of the Guidance are authorized pursuant to the Board’s examination and reporting authorities, located in sections 9, 11(a), 25, and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act, section 5 of the Bank Holding Company Act, section 10(b) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act, and section 7(c) of the International Banking Act, and by section 39 of the PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Federal Deposit Insurance Act, which authorizes the Board to prescribe compensation standards. Because the recordkeeping provisions are contained within guidance, which is nonbinding, they are voluntary. There are no reporting forms associated with this information collection. Because the incentive compensation records would be maintained at each banking organization, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a banking organization, this information may be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in ‘‘examination, operating, or condition reports’’ obtained in the bank supervisory process. In addition, the information may also constitute nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent, and thus may be kept confidential by the Board pursuant to exemption 4 of the FOIA. Consultation outside the agency: The Board has consulted with the FDIC and OCC and confirmed that there will be no revisions to the guidance. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, August 26, 2021. Michele Taylor Fennell, Deputy Associate Secretary of the Board.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Head Start REACH: 
Strengthening Outreach, Recruitment and Engagement Approaches with 
Families project is proposing to conduct qualitative case studies to 
examine the approaches used by Head Start programs to recruit, select, 
enroll, and retain families experiencing adversities and the 
implementation of these approaches, including supporting factors and 
barriers. Adversities is a broad term that refers to a wide range of 
circumstances or events that pose a threat to a child or caregiver's 
physical or psychological well-being. The adversities that families 
experience are often intertwined with poverty, may co-occur, and are 
affected by systematic factors, such as structural racism. Common 
examples include (but are not limited to) families experiencing 
homelessness; involvement in child welfare, including foster care; and 
affected by substance use, mental health issues, and domestic violence.
    We will collect information from six sites; each site will include 
(1) a Head Start program that has demonstrated success in the RSER of 
families experiencing adversities and (2) up to four of its community 
partner organizations that serve families experiencing adversities.
    We will collect information on how programs determine which 
adversities to focus on for their RSER efforts; RSER approaches 
programs use, focusing specifically on families experiencing 
adversities; RSER-related training and support that Head Start staff 
receive; partnerships that programs form with organizations in the 
community to support these activities; and supporting factors and 
barriers to participation of enrolled and non-enrolled families who 
face adversities.
    Respondents: Head Start program directors, Head Start staff 
conducting eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment, attendance 
(ERSEA) activities, staff from community organizations with which Head 
Start programs partner for ERSEA activities, Head Start-eligible 
parents enrolled in Head Start, and those not enrolled in Head Start.
