Federal Reserve Study Finds Evidence of Significant Impact of the Community Reinvestment Act
The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) of 1977 incentivizes depository institutions to meet the credit needs of low- and moderate-income (LMI) people and neighborhoods. Federal regulators periodically examine CRA-regulated depository institutions’ (banks, hereafter)1 performance in lending and financial services. Banks’ CRA ratings are considered when regulators approve bank mergers, acquisitions, and branch openings
