Title: Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF) Survey.
Abstract: Established by the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (the Act) (Pub. L. 111-240), the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF) is a dedicated fund designed to provide capital to qualified community banks and community development loan funds (CDLFs) in order to encourage small business lending. The purpose of the SBLF is to encourage Main Street banks and small businesses to work together, help create jobs, and promote economic growth in communities across the nation. In order to receive capital from the SBLF, institutions were required to enter into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Treasury. Under Section 3.1(c)(ii)(D) of the Securities Purchase Agreement, institutions participating in the SBLF are required to complete an annual survey providing a description of, among other things, how the institutions have utilized the SBLF funds and how the funds have impacted the operations and status of the institutions. As such, Treasury is seeking responses from institutions participating in the SBLF regarding the institutions' small business lending policies and practices, use of SBLF funding, and efforts to engage in outreach activities with respect to small business lending.
Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profit institutions, and non-profit institutions.
Estimated Total Burden Hours: 2,224.
