This program reviews March 18 proposed amendments that would clarify a number of issues related to community development activities and how they impact your CRA rating. It also reviews basic requirements of the CRA regulations.

It has been years since the federal bank regulatory agencies have overhauled the Community Reinvestment Act regulations, but they are constantly tinkering with the rules. The changes impact how your rating is determined and what activities receive community development credit. On March 18, 2013 the federal bank regulatory agencies published proposed amendments that would clarify a number of issues related to community development activities. This program reviews and explains the proposed changes and how those changes impact your CRA rating. It also reviews the basic requirements of the CRA regulations.

Bankers should view CRA ratings as a game. You need to learn how to play the game well. The challenge of playing the game is made more difficult as the agencies continuously change the rules of the game. This program contains core knowledge needed by all lenders to implement the new CRA rules.  Also:

  • The detailed manual is a great desktop reference; and
  • The presenter has decades of experience with this topic.
