On August 31, the FDIC issued its Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Examination Schedule for the Fourth Quarter of 2017 and First Quarter of 2018. The FDIC stated that the banks listed on the schedules were chosen for CRA examinations based on their asset size and CRA rating, and that absent reasonable cause, institutions with $250 million or less in assets and a CRA rating of “Satisfactory” would be examined no more than once every 48 months, and those institutions with a CRA rating of “Outstanding” would be examined no more than once every 60 months. The FDIC noted that due to recent natural disasters, some examinations may be delayed.
Separately, the FDIC published its monthly list of state nonmember banks recently evaluated for CRA compliance. The list reports CRA evaluation ratings assigned to institutions in June 2017 as required by the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989. Of the 67 banks evaluated, 6 were rated “Outstanding,” 59 received a “Satisfactory” rating, and 2 were rated “Needs to Improve.” Monthly lists of all state nonmember banks and their evaluations that have been made publically available can be accessed through the FDIC’s website.
