In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Board proposes to establish a new system of records BGFRS-39 (General File of the Community Advisory Council). The Board has established a Community Advisory Council (the “CAC”). The CAC is scheduled to meet semi-annually with the Board to offer diverse perspectives on the economic circumstances and financial services needs of consumers and communities, with a particular focus on the concerns of low- and moderate-income populations.
