CRA Nuts & Bolts - Five Steps to Pass the Exam

This webinar will focus on several simple steps to ensure a successful CRA exam outcome.

Writing a dynamic CRA context report can show examiners not only that your financial institution understands the community credit needs, but also that you are effectively meeting the needs in the assessment areas you serve. We will review the steps required to establish your case and demonstrate why your CRA program qualifies for a "Satisfactory" or possibly "Outstanding" rating.

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. 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?

Covered Topics:

  • Five steps for managing a CRA exam and the importance of developing a CRA strategy.
  • Tips for banks that are ISB (intermediate small banks) and will become a CRA reporter when the large bank threshold is reached
  • Learn how to document lending activity in designated disaster areas.
  • What's included in a performance context? Learn how to describe your institution, quantify the ability and capacity of the bank to meet credit needs based on financial data, and any issues that should be highlighted about a holding company, affiliate or subsidiary
  • Learn how to highlight the positive outcomes of your lending focus and business strategy
  • Tips to describe your assessment area including demographic and economic data resources.
  • Best practices to deal with CRA-related complaints and potential fair lending issues that can threaten a successful exam.
  • Definitions of Community Development Loans and Services
  • Ideas for passing the Investment Test portion of the exam
  • Helpful CRA compliance resources and regulatory guidance
