On June 2, the FDIC issued FIL-27-2023 to provide regulatory relief to financial institutions and facilitate recovery in areas of Guam affected by Typhoon Mawar. The FDIC acknowledged the unusual circumstances faced by affected financial institutions and encouraged those institutions to work with impacted borrowers to, among other things: (i) extend repayment terms; (ii) restructure existing loans; or (iii) ease terms for new loans, provided the measures are done “in a manner consistent with sound banking practices.” Additionally, the FDIC noted that financial institutions “may receive favorable Community Reinvestment Act consideration for community development loans, investments, and services in support of disaster recovery.” The FDIC will also consider regulatory relief from certain filing and publishing requirements and instructed financial institutions to contact their regional community affairs officer.
