Such requests for approval must be filed as applications at the appropriate Reserve Bank for the SMB. Due to the limited information that an SMB generally has to provide for branch proposals, there is no reporting form for a domestic branch application. An SMB is required to notify the Federal Reserve by letter of its intent to establish one or more new branches and provide evidence that public notice of the proposed branch(es) has been published by the SMB in the appropriate newspaper(s). The Federal Reserve uses the information provided to fulfill its statutory obligation to review branch applications before acting on the proposals and to otherwise supervise SMBs. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The filing requirements under the FR 4001 are authorized by section 9(3) of the Federal Reserve Act.1 The filing requirements under the FR 4001 are required to obtain a benefit. The information in an SMB’s domestic branch application is public. An SMB may request that portions of its application be kept confidential pursuant to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) if they contain commercial or financial information that is both customarily and actually treated as private.2 Information provided by an SMB as part of its domestic branch application may also 1 12 U.S.C. 321 (requiring state member banks to obtain Board approval prior to establishing a domestic branch). 2 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4).

However, the release of information such as the educational and professional qualifications of successful applicants would not likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and may be disclosed under the FOIA. In addition, once a person becomes a member of the CAC, their name, and the name and location of the organization where they are employed, would generally be listed on the Board’s public website. Current actions: On October 5, 2021, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (86 FR 54977) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Application Form for Membership on the Community Advisory Committee Council.

ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Child Care (OCC) plans to submit a generic information collection (GenIC) request under the following umbrella generic: Generic Clearance for Financial Reports used for ACF Mandatory Grant Programs (0970–0510). This request includes a draft announcement with instructions to be completed by Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) grant recipients that will be unable to obligate funds that will reach the end of their obligation period on September 30, 2022. DATES: Comments due within 14 days of publication. In compliance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, ACF is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above and below. ADDRESSES: Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be submitted by emailing infocollection@ acf.hhs.gov. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: CCDF regulations authorize HHS to reallot funds to other state and tribal lead agencies that cannot be obligated by states or tribes by the obligation deadline. Pursuant to the CCDF Rule (45 CFR 98.64), each year, the state and tribal lead agency must report to the Secretary the dollar amount from the previous year’s grant that it will be unable to obligate by the end of the obligation period. Such SUMMARY: reports must be postmarked or emailed by April 1. If the Secretary does not receive a report, any funds that are not obligated by the obligation deadline will revert to the Federal Government. For the purposes of this data collection, ‘‘state’’ refers to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The Generic Clearance for Financial Reports used for ACF Mandatory Grant Programs allows ACF programs to assist in the computation of the grant awards issued to each program’s grantees. For more information about the umbrella generic, see: https://www.reginfo.gov/ public/do/PRAViewDocument?ref_nbr= 202108-0970-002. This specific GenIC will be issued as a Program Instruction and an email announcement on the OCC listserv. State and tribal lead agencies that will be unable to obligate their funds by September 30, 2022, must inform ACF by April 1, 2022. Lead Agencies should submit a letter by mail or email signed by an official authorized to make financial decisions (e.g., Tribal Chair, Agency Director) to their OCC Regional Program Manager and ACF Regional Grants Management Specialist. The letter or email should report the amount of funds for each of the following funding streams that the Lead Agency will be unable to obligate: Grant year 2021 CCDF discretionary funds, and CCDF supplemental funds awarded under the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act, 2019 (Pub. L. 116–20); the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (Pub. L. 116–136); the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 116–260); and the American Rescue Plan Act child care stabilization funds (Pub. L. 117–2). ACF will de-obligate funds that are reported and re-allot those funds to state and tribal lead agencies that request the funds. Respondents: Respondents will be state and tribal officials authorized to report on behalf of the CCDF program, which will likely be CCDF program administrators. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Title of information collection Number of respondents Annual frequency of responses Hourly burden per response Annual hourly burden FFY 2022 CCDF Discretionary Funds for Reallotment ................................... 317 1 1 317 2 12 U.S.C. 225a.

the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) Council.
    Estimated number of respondents: 300.
    Estimated average hours per response: 1.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 300.
    General description of report: The CAC Application (Application) is 
used to obtain information about the experience and qualification of 
persons seeking to be considered for membership on the CAC of the 
Board. The Application collects an applicant's contact information; 
details regarding current employment and areas of expertise; a resume, 
which typically includes information about employment history, 
education, and training; and a cover letter explaining why the 
applicant is interested in serving on the CAC and what he or she 
believes are their primary qualifications. Applicants can voluntarily 
elect to provide additional information to support their application.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Application is 
authorized pursuant to sections 2A and 10 of the Federal Reserve Act 
(FRA).\1\ Section 2A of the FRA requires the Board and Federal Open 
Market Committee to ``maintain long run growth of the monetary and

information ``would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of 
personal privacy.'' For example, the release of information such as the 
applicant's address, home telephone number, or personal email address 
to the public would likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of 
personal privacy and be kept confidential. However, the release of 
information such as the educational and professional qualifications of 
successful applicants would not likely constitute a clearly unwarranted 
invasion of personal privacy and may be disclosed under the FOIA. In 
addition, once a person becomes a member of the CAC, their name, and 
the name and location of the organization where they are employed, 
would generally be listed on the Board's public website.
