The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that would amend 12 CFR part 1290 to transfer from FHFA to the 12 Federal Home Loan Banks (Banks) the responsibility for collecting information on members' compliance with the community support standards, and for processing and acting on members' requests to remove restrictions on access to long-term advances. Under the proposed rule, the use of FHFA Form 60 would be discontinued, although the Banks would be free to adopt a similar form or to use other appropriate means for the collection of information on compliance with the community support standards. As described in the Supporting Statement, the scope of compliance information to be collected will be slightly narrower under the proposed rule because members will no longer be required to report their current Community Reinvestment Act evaluation ratings (the Banks will obtain this information from other sources). The proposed rule would not substantively or materially modify the approved information collection with respect to the members' information collection burden, although it would materially decrease the time and hour burden on FHFA. The currently approved time burden (7,190) included FHFA and the Banks time burden; however, this should have been reported as 4,115 hours (the members time burden).
