Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request
The FDIC, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on a proposed new collection of information, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). The collection is mandated by section 7 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Conforming Amendments Act of 2005 (``Reform Act'') (Pub. L. 109-173), which calls for the FDIC to conduct ongoing surveys ``on efforts by insured depository institutions to bring those individuals and families who have rarely, if ever, held a checking account, a savings account or other type of transaction or check cashing account at an insured depository institution (hereafter in this section referred to as the `unbanked') into the conventional finance system.'' The FDIC is initiating work on the first of these surveys and intends to survey FDIC-insured depository institutions on their efforts to serve underbanked, as well as unbanked, populations. Underbanked populations include individuals who have an account with an insured depository but also rely on nonbank alternative financial service providers for transaction services or high cost credit products.

The collection would provide information on the features and effectiveness of small-dollar programs offered by FDIC-insured financial institutions.
Proposed Illustrations of Consumer Information for Subprime Mortgage Lending
The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, and NCUA (the Agencies), request comment on these Proposed Illustrations of Consumer Information for Subprime Mortgage Lending. The illustrations are intended to assist institutions in providing consumer information as discussed in the consumer protection portion of the Agencies' Statement on Subprime Mortgage Lending (Subprime Statement). The illustrations are not intended as model forms, and institutions will not be required to use them. Rather, they are provided to respond to the requests of commenters that the Agencies provide uniform disclosures for, or illustrations of, the type of consumer information contemplated by the Subprime Statement.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Revision of Information Collection; Renewal; Comment Request
The OCC and FDIC (Agencies), as part of their continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invite the public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed revisions to a continuing information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The Agencies may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Agencies are soliciting comments on proposed revisions to the information collections titled: ``Interagency Bank Merger Act Application.'' The General Information and Instructions section has been revised to delete information about the Bank Insurance Fund (BIF), the Savings Association Insurance Fund (SAIF), and the Oakar statutory provisions. In addition, corresponding legal citations on the form to these provisions are being deleted. The Agencies also solicit comment on the renewal without change to the information collections titled: ``Interagency Biographical and Financial Report'' and ``Interagency Notice of Change in Control.'' The OCC solicits comment on the renewal without change to its ``Interagency Notice of Change in Directors or Senior Executive Officers'' information collection. Additionally, the OCC is making other clarifying changes to the Comptroller's Licensing Manual (Manual).
