SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the OMB for each collection of information that they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. OCC asks that OMB approve the collection of information set forth in this document. Title: Community Reinvestment Act Qualifying Activities Confirmation Request Form. OMB Control No.: 1557–NEW. Abstract: The OCC is revising and requesting a new OMB control number for its form titled ‘‘Community Reinvestment Act Qualifying Activities Confirmation Request Form,’’ which is currently approved under OMB Control No. 1557–0160. The form was created to address the need for a qualifying activities confirmation process that would allow banks and interested parties to ascertain whether an activity qualifies under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The process was well-received and strongly supported by commenters on the OCC ANPR and NPR that resulted in the 2020 final rule. Commenters on the OCC’s September 2021 CRA NPR expressed continued support for such a confirmation system and, thus, the OCC has determined that it is important to allow for a more effective and efficient confirmation of CRA-qualified activities. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:01 Mar 28, 2022 Jkt 256001 The proposed revised form includes the following changes: • The relocation of the regulation citation checklist of qualifying activities from the submitter portion of the form to the OCC portion of the form to reduce burden on the submitter and more accurately capture the qualifying basis of a CRA activity. • The relocation of the activity title field from the submitter portion of the form to the OCC portion of the form to reduce burden on the submitter and permit the OCC to develop an appropriate and unique identifying title of the activity for the qualifying activities confirmation request decision list and the CRA Illustrative List of Qualifying Activities, when applicable. • The relocation of the activity short description field from the submitter portion of the form to the OCC portion of the form to reduce burden on the submitter and permit the OCC to develop a unique, appropriate identifying short description of the activity for the qualifying activities confirmation request decision list and the CRA Illustrative List of Qualifying Activities, when applicable. • The addition of a new field to the submitter portion of the form to provide for the identification of a contact’s bank or organization, if applicable, as that entity may differ from the bank or organization conducting the activity. • The elimination of the OCC portion of the form from the publicly-available submitter portion of the form consistent with the integration of the OCC portion of the form into a web-based platform that eliminates use of the Adobe Acrobat format in conducting the review of submitted activities. • The revision of regulatory citations in the form. • The addition of a field indicating whether the activity occurred between October 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021. Type of Review: Regular. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; individuals. Number of Respondents: 120. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Total Annual Burden: 2,280 hours. On December 15, 2021, the OCC published a notice for 60 days of comment concerning this collection, 86 FR 71318. No comments were received. Comments continue to be solicited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.

OMB Control No.: 1557–0353. Title: Request for a Medical Exception to the COVID–19 Vaccine Requirement. OMB Control No.: 1557–0352. Abstract: The President, by Executive order 13991 (January 20, 2021) established the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force. The Taskforce was established to give the heads of Federal agencies ongoing guidance to keep their employees safe and their agencies operating during the COVID–19 pandemic. The Taskforce issued guidance, in accordance with the President’s Executive Order 14043 (September 9, 2021), requiring federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID–19 by November 22, 2021 absent a legally required exception. To determine whether employees who requested a religious or medical exception qualified for the exception sought, or, alternatively, were required to comply with the November 22 deadline, the OCC developed the ‘‘Request for Religious Exception to the COVID–19 Vaccination Requirement Form’’ and the ‘‘Request for Medical Exception to the COVID–19 Vaccination Requirement Form’’ (collectively, Request forms). The Request forms were developed, consistent with guidance issued by the Task force and the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Civil Rights and Diversity, to gather information from employees and applicants for employment who PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18069 requested religious or medical exceptions to determine whether such employees qualified for legal exceptions to the vaccine requirement. The Request forms also were used to collect information from job applicants who requested a legal exception upon receiving an offer of employment from the OCC. To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID–19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees while the injunction is in effect. Type of Review: Extension, without change, of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; individuals. Religious Exception: Estimated Number of Respondents: 4 Job Applicants. Estimated Burden per Respondent: 0.50 hours. Total Burden: 2 hours. Medical Exception: Estimated Number of Respondents: 2 Job Applicants; 66 Medical Professionals. Estimated Burden per Respondent: 0.25 hours for Job Applicants; 0.50 hours for Medical Professionals. Total Burden: 33.5 hours. On January 18, 2022, the OCC published a 60-day notice for this information collection, 87 FR 2669. No comments were received. Comments continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the collections of information; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. A Notice Regarding Injunctions The vaccination requirement issued pursuant to E.O. 14043, is currently the E:\FR\FM\29MRN1.SGM 29MRN1 18070 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 60 / Tuesday, March 29, 2022 / Notices subject of a nationwide injunction. While that injunction remains in place, the OCC will not process requests for a medical or religious exception from the COVID–19 vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043. The OCC will also not request the submission of any medical or religious information related to a request for an exception from the vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 while the injunction remains in place. But the OCC may nevertheless receive information regarding a medical or religious exception. That is because, if the OCC were to receive a request for an exception from the COVID–19 vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 during the pendency of the injunction, the OCC will accept the request, hold it in abeyance, and notify the employee who submitted the request that implementation and enforcement of the COVID–19 vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 is currently enjoined and that an exception therefore is not necessary so long as the injunction is in place. In other words, during the pendency of the injunction, any information collection related to requests for medical or religious exception from the COVID–19 vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 is not undertaken to implement or enforce the COVID–19 vaccination requirement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the 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 that they conduct or sponsor. 
``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR

Department of Treasury's Office of Civil Rights and Diversity, to 
gather information from employees and applicants for employment who 
requested religious or medical exceptions to determine whether such 
employees qualified for legal exceptions to the vaccine requirement. 
The Request forms also were used to collect information from job 
applicants who requested a legal exception upon receiving an offer of 
employment from the OCC.
    To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide 
injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending 
on the course of ongoing litigation, Office of the Comptroller of the

collections of information;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the

A Notice Regarding Injunctions

    The vaccination requirement issued pursuant to E.O. 14043, is 
currently the

[[Page 18070]]

subject of a nationwide injunction. While that injunction remains in 
place, the OCC will not process requests for a medical or religious 
exception from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 
14043. The OCC will also not request the submission of any medical or 
religious information related to a request for an exception from the 
vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 while the injunction 
remains in place. But the OCC may nevertheless receive information 
regarding a medical or religious exception. That is because, if the OCC 
were to receive a request for an exception from the COVID-19 
vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 during the pendency of 
the injunction, the OCC will accept the request, hold it in abeyance, 
and notify the employee who submitted the request that implementation 
and enforcement of the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to 
E.O. 14043 is currently enjoined and that an exception therefore is not 
necessary so long as the injunction is in place. In other words, during 
the pendency of the injunction, any information collection related to 
requests for medical or religious exception from the COVID-19 
vaccination requirement pursuant to E.O. 14043 is not undertaken to 
implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.
