Expiration Date: June 30, 2011.
Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved information collection.
Abstract: Under the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (the “Act”), the Department of the Treasury is responsible for implementing several components of the Act. Among these components is a program under title III of the Act which requires Treasury to make payments to participating States. Participating States will use the Federal funds for programs that leverage private lending to help finance small businesses and manufacturers that are creditworthy, but are not getting the loans they need to expand and create jobs. The collection of information is necessary to ensure that the allocation agreement constitutes a legal binding obligation of the participating State and to monitor participating State compliance and performance. The recordkeeping requirements ensure both the effective and efficient use of the funds consistent with the agreement.
Affected Public: State and Local Governments.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 56.
Estimated total annual responses: 112.
Hours per response: 11.
Total annual burden hours: 1,232.Start Signature
