NHTSA estimates the total hourly compensation cost for law enforcement officers to be $85,942.56 ($54.12 × 1,588 hours).

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. 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;
    (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.
