The U.S. Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Pub. L. No. 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c) (2) (A)). Currently, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund), the Department of the Treasury, is soliciting comments concerning the Performance Progress Report and Financial Statement Audit Report Form. The Performance Progress Report and Financial Statement Audit Report Form are online forms submitted through the CDFI Fund’s Awards Management Information System (AMIS).
Recipients of the Community Development Financial Institutions Program (CDFI Program), the CDFI Rapid Response Program (CDFI RRP), the Native American CDFI Assistance Program (NACA Program), and the Small Dollar Loan Program (SDL Program) submit the Performance Progress Report via AMIS once a year. Recipients and Allocatees of the CDFI Program, CDFI RRP, NACA Program, CMF, New Markets Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program), and SDL Program also submit the Financial Statement Audit Report via AMIS once. These reports are used to determine Recipient compliance with their Assistance Agreement. There are no significant content changes to the forms, however minor, non-substantive modifications were made to the Performance Progress Report to include changes resulting from the implementation of new programs and modifications to existing Assistance Agreements.
Comments are invited on: (a) whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have 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 collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
Comments must be submitted in writing by 60 days after the date of publication of the Federal Register notice to Heather Hunt, Program Manager for the Office of Compliance Monitoring and Evaluation (OCME), CDFI Fund at CCME@cdfi.treas.gov
