On July 3, the FDIC issued Financial Institution Letter FIL-37-2018 to provide regulatory relief to financial institutions and facilitate recovery in areas of Texas affected by severe storms and flooding from June 19 through the present. The FDIC is encouraging institutions to consider, among other things, extending repayment terms and restructuring existing loans that may be affected by the natural disasters. Additionally, the FDIC notes that institutions may receive favorable Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) consideration for community development loans, investments, and services in support of disaster recovery.
