CRA Review & Update
It has been years since the regulatory agencies have overhauled CRA regulations but they are constantly tinkering with the rules.

This program explains the changes as well as the basic requirements.

On December 16, 2015, the federal bank regulatory agencies published amendments that  adjust the asset-size thresholds used to define “small bank” and “intermediate small bank.” The agencies also made technical edits to remove obsolete references to the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) and update cross-references to regulations C (HMDA) and Z (TILA).


This two-hour program includes:

  • A review of the basic requirements of CRA and its implementing regulations, including:
    • Performance tests, standards and ratings;
    • Assigned ratings;
    • Assessment area delineation;
    • Public file requirements;
    • CRA notices; and
    • Community development activities;
  • An explanation of the adjustment to the asset-size thresholds used to define “small bank” and “intermediate small bank.” 
  • A review of the technical edits to remove obsolete references to the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) and update cross-references to Regulations C (HMDA) and Z (TILA).

Why Participate?

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

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


The program is designed for management of the loan department, compliance officers, CRA officers, marketing staff and auditors.
