On December 31, the Federal Reserve Board, the OCC, and the FDIC announced the joint annual adjustments to CRA asset-size thresholds used to define small and intermediate small banks and small and intermediate small savings associations. A “small” bank or savings association is defined as an institution that, as of December 31 of either of the prior two calendar years, had less than $1.305 billion in assets. An “intermediate small” bank or savings association is defined as an institution that, as of December 31 of both of the prior two calendar years, had at least $326 million in assets, and as of December 31 of either of the past two calendar years, had less than $1.305 billion in assets. This joint final rule became effective on January 1.
