OMB Number: 3133-0024.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Title: Mergers of Federally-Insured Credit Unions; Voluntary Termination or Conversion of Insured Status, 12 CFR part 708b.

Abstract: Part 708b of NCUA's rules sets forth the procedural and disclosure requirements for mergers of federally-insured credit unions, conversions from federal share insurance to nonfederal insurance, and federal share insurance terminations. Part 708b is designed to ensure NCUA has sufficient information whether to approve a proposed merger, share insurance conversion, or share insurance termination. It further ensures that members of credit unions have sufficient and accurate information to exercise their vote properly concerning a proposed merger, insurance conversion, or insurance termination. The rule also protects the property interests of members who may lose their federal share insurance due to a merger, share insurance conversion, or share insurance termination.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 7,562.

OMB Number: 3133-0068.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Title: Nondiscrimination Requirements in Real Estate-Related Lending—Appraisals, 12 CFR 701.31.

Abstract: Section 701.31 of NCUA's regulations implements requirements of the Fair Housing Act. It requires Federal credit unions (FCUs) to maintain a copy of the real estate appraisal used to support an applicant's real estate-related loan application and to make it available to that member/applicant for a period of 25 months (§ 701.31(c)(5)). The regulation also requires FCUs that use the collateral's location as a factor in evaluating real estate-related loan applications to disclose such fact on the appraisal, along with a statement justifying its use (§ 701.31 (c)(4)). NCUA and consumers use the information to ensure compliance with Fair Housing Act nondiscrimination requirements that prohibit consideration of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap, or familial status in real estate appraisals.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 3,721.
