Title: Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)—Capital Purchase Program (CPP) Participants Use of Funds Survey.
Abstract: Authorized under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-343), the Department of the Treasury has implemented several aspects of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). The TARP includes several components including a voluntary Capital Purchase Program (CPP) under which the Department has purchased qualifying capital in U.S. banking organizations. The CPP is an important part of the Department's efforts to restore confidence in our financial system and ensure that credit continues to be available to consumers and businesses. As an essential part of restoring confidence, the Treasury has committed to determining the effectiveness of the CPP. Additionally, American taxpayers are particularly interested in knowing how banks have used the money that Treasury has invested through the CPP. Consequently, the Treasury is seeking responses from banking institutions that have received CPP funds regarding: how the CPP investment has affected the banks' operations, how these institutions have used CPP funds, and how their usage of CPP funds has changed over time. The information will be used to gauge how participants in the CPP are utilizing TARP capital.
Affected public: Private Sector: Businesses or other for-profits.
Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 51,200.
