Session Description The Federal financial supervisory agencies are jointly undertaking a review of the Community Reinvestment Act [CRA] regulations, in fulfillment of the commitment made to do so when the current regulation was adopted in 1995. A fundamental issue for consideration is whether any change to the regulations would be beneficial or warranted at this time.
The Office of Regional & Community Affairs at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is hosting the sessions listed below to discuss the current CRA regulations and to get your input on the issues under consideration by the agencies.
Who Should Attend Bankers Representatives of community organizations Others interested in CRA and community development
