How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of the Committee is to provide advice and recommendations to the Department of the Treasury (“Department”) to assist the Offices of the Secretary and Deputy Secretary in carrying out their duties and authorities towards advancing racial equity and addressing acute disparities for communities of color who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.

The Committee will convene to identify, monitor, and review aspects of the domestic economy that have directly and indirectly resulted in unfavorable conditions for Black, Latino, and Indigenous and Native American persons, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other persons of color. Topics of discussion may include, but not be limited to, financial inclusion, capital access, housing stability, federal government supplier diversity and economic development.
How is membership balanced?*The body of the Committee shall consist of up to 25 members. The groups/entities represented on the Committee in order to achieve a fairly balanced membership shall represent a wide range of views, such as the Federal government, financial services industry, state regulatory authorities, consumer or public advocacy organizations, community-based groups, academia, philanthropic organizations, as well as others focused on the advancement of equity priorities within the United States. The Committee may be composed of special government employees and representative members. However, membership balance is not static and may change, depending on the work of the Committee.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee shall meet at such intervals as are necessary to carry out its duties. It is estimated that the Committee will generally meet four times per year, virtually or in person.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Department considered multiple options for seeking input on how to advance its racial equity strategy and determined that a FACA committee would provide the most consistency and an opportunity for more in-depth analysis of racial equity issues than other options (such as ad hoc meetings with rotating groups of third-party stakeholders). A committee enables the Department to receive advice and recommendations from a broad swath of members who have a variety of relevant expertise and experience. The committee would also be able address inquiries the Department has received from Congress on the topic of racial equity.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings will be open.
