On January 23, 2015, the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency released a list of Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”) performance evaluations that became public during the period of December 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014. The CRA requires each federal bank regulatory agency to assess each federally insured institution's record of helping to meet the credit needs of its entire community, consistent with safe and sound lending. The list only includes national banks, federal savings associations and insured federal branches of foreign banks. The possible rating categories are as follows: outstanding, satisfactory, needs to improve and substantial noncompliance. Of the thirty evaluations made public, two were rated outstanding and twenty- eight were rated satisfactory.
