CRA Exam Excerpts:
How Credit is Granted

Your bank may earn CRA credit in three ways:

  • For the principal of your financial commitment, either as a community development loan or as a qualified investment.
  • On interest retained by the Foundation each year (1.25%) as a grant under the investment test.
  • Grants to the Foundation that can be counted under the investment test.
