Currently, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (the ``CDFI Fund''), the Department of the Treasury, is soliciting comments concerning data collection to support the Capacity Building Initiative. The CDFI Fund intends to collect data on the CDFI industry's needs for different training and technical assistance topics. The CDFI Fund (and its contractors) will assess the demand for capacity-building on specific topics, the type of content to be provided, and the target audience for specific training courses. Additionally, the CDFI Fund (and its contractors) will conduct capacity assessments of program participants to further refine course content. Data collection will be used to evaluate the services being provided through the Capacity Building Initiative as well. Data collection is expected to take place via online surveys, survey forms submitted electronically to the CDFI Fund, in-person and remote focus groups, phone questionnaires, or similar methods. In general, the CDFI Fund does not anticipate publishing the results of these data collections; however, should this information be useful to the public, the CDFI Fund will ensure that no information of a sensitive or proprietary nature is released.

Amendment of Notice of Allocation Availability (NOAA) Inviting Applications for the Combined Calendar Year (CY) 2013 and 2014 Allocation Round of the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program
Document Number: 2014-04723
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-03-04
Agency: Community Development Financial Institutions Fund, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This notice amends the NOAA that was published on July 29, 2013 (78 FR 45604) for the combined calendar year 2013 and 2014 allocation round of the NMTC Program, as authorized by Title I, subtitle C, section 121 of the Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-554) and as amended thereafter. Through the NMTC Program, the CDFI Fund provides authority to CDEs to offer an incentive to investors in the form of tax credits over seven years, which is expected to stimulate the provision of private investment capital that, in turn, will facilitate economic and community development in Low- Income Communities. The July 29, 2013 NOAA announced the availability of up to $8.5 billion of NMTC investment authority, $3.5 billion of which was authorized by American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 and an additional $5.0 billion, which was subject to Congressional authorization. Because the CDFI Fund has not received Congressional allocation authority for calendar year 2014 as of the date of this notice, it is amending the July 29, 2013 NOAA to reflect the authorized authority for calendar year 2013 only. Thus, this notice revises the July 29, 2013 NOAA such that the funding opportunity announced therein no longer includes the combined calendar years 2013 and 2014, but is for calendar year 2013 only. Decrease in Allocation Authority: The July 29, 2013 NOAA announced that there would be a total of $8.5 billion of NMTC allocation authority available in the combined calendar year 2013 and 2014 Allocation Round. This notice revises the July 29, 2013 NOAA such that $3.5 billion of NMTC allocation authority is available for calendar year 2013 only. Decrease of Award Amount: The July 29, 2013 NOAA also announced that the CDFI Fund anticipates that it will provide allocation awards of not more than $125 million per Allocatee. Due to not having allocation authority for calendar year 2014 as of the date of this notice, this notice revises the July 29, 2013 NOAA such that the CDFI Fund now expects that it may provide allocation awards of not more than $100 million of allocation per Allocatee. All other information and requirements set forth in the July 29, 2013 NOAA shall remain effective, as published.
