Community Impact Review — Our newest Community Impact Review  highlights examples of how banks are enhancing the lives of the elderly in their communities. Click THIS LINK to view the electronic copy, or see the one-page summary HERE.   Crossing a New CRA Asset Size Threshold? Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the total assets of all U.S. commercial banks have grown by more than $5 trillion—that’s trillion with a “T.” This unprecedented balance sheet expansion, as well as the continued trend of consolidation in the industry, has pushed some community banks into a new Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) asset-size categorization sooner than anticipated. THIS ISSUE BRIEF will discuss:

  • The increased regulatory expectations associated with moving up from being a small bank to an intermediate small bank (ISB) or from an ISB to a large bank.
  • Strategies community banks can use to successfully manage these growing pains and demonstrate compliance.

      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.


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


      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

      • 17,540 affordable rental housing units
