ACTION:

Notice and request for comments.

SUMMARY:

The Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on a proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). The Office of Financial Education within the Department of the Treasury is soliciting comments on a proposed new collection of information concerning the Workplace Financial Education Honor Roll Program (Honor Roll) application. To keep America competitive in the future, it is important to continue to increase the levels of financial literacy in the U.S. The purpose of the Honor Roll is to recognize employers that provide successful financial education programs to their employees. The Honor Roll is intended to spur interest in financial education by highlighting successful initiatives that show the benefits of financial education through both private sector and public sector efforts. The Honor Roll is one of the initiatives that the newly created President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy has recommended to the Department of the Treasury.
