Writing a dynamic CRA context report can show examiners not only that your financial institution understands the community demonstrate why your CRA program qualifies for a Satisfactory or possibly Outstanding rating credit needs, but that you are effectively meeting the needs in the assessment areas you serve. We will review the steps required to establish your case and tips for managing the exam.
The definition of community development changed in September, 2005 to include, among other things, activities that revitalize or stabilize designated disaster areas. A financial institution's activity will be considered to revitalize or stabilize a designated disaster area if it helps to attract new, or retain existing, businesses or residents and is related to disaster recovery and examiners will consider revitalization or stabilization activities that take place within 36 months after the date of the disaster designation. Could your financial institution be eligible to receive special consideration for lending in a designated disaster area?
