    Loans, Investments and Grants

    Your bank makes a CRA-qualified community development loan, investment or grant to CRA Partners to support the Senior Crimestoppers program in senior housing facilities, HUD communities and state veterans homes (at no cost) in your assessment area.

    Low–Risk

    All loans and investments are fully collateralized by CRA-qualified securities selected by your bank.

    Yield

    The yield on your loans and investments is based on the yield paid on the security you use to collateralize the loan or investment, less a portion we retain to support our program.
  • Positive Community Impact
    The cumulative community impact through the collateral purchased on behalf of our bank partners is approximately $283 million:
    • 8,400 affordable rental housing units
    • 768 home mortgages for low-to-moderate-income families
