Proposed Collection: Comment Request
The Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). Currently, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (``the Fund'') within the Department of the Treasury is soliciting comments concerning the Certification of Material Events Form. This specific information collection will capture information related to Community Development Entity (CDE)/New Markets Tax Credit material events, as well as Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) material events, in a single form. The revised document will provide a more comprehensive list of potential material events to inform CDEs and CDFIs of the events that need to be reported to the CDFI Fund and will require the CDE or CDFI to affirmatively indicate, through a series of specific questions, whether or not the event will have an impact on areas of operations that are of particular concern to the CDFI Fund. This information will enable the CDFI Fund to better manage the Material Events review process and monitor the effects of Material Events on certification or compliance status.
