Training Overview

What is your CRA rating? Learn how to do better for your institution and community.

On November 1, New York expanded the state’s version of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) to nonbank mortgage lenders. This is just one example of a renewed nationwide focus on the obligations of financial institutions to meet the credit needs of the communities in which they do business.

You must build a strong CRA program that adheres to laws and regulations while fulfilling the goal of supporting low- and moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods. The FDIC, FRB, OTS, and OCC take these responsibilities very seriously, using CRA Ratings and Performance Evaluations to ensure compliance.
