Inactive Financial Institution Letters
October 28, 1996
|TO:|| CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER and COMPLIANCE
|SUBJECT:|| Interagency Questions and Answers on
the Revised Community Reinvestment Act Regulations
| The revised Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations
that went into effect January 1, 1996, have prompted many
questions from lenders and others. To ensure consistency
in the answers being provided, the four regulatory agencies
responsible for CRA enforcement have produced the attached
Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Community Reinvestment,
a comprehensive CRA reference document.
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council published the reference document in the Federal Register on October 21, 1996, on behalf of its member banking regulatory agencies -- the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve System and the Office of Thrift Supervision.
The attached document answers questions that regulators have most frequently been asked about CRA implementation. Although most of the information in Interagency Questions and Answers has already been made available to the public in other documents, including the preamble to the CRA regulations, interagency staff letters and other agency guidance, this publication consolidates the information into a practical reference for financial institutions, their examiners and the public. The agencies intend to update the publication regularly, and invite public comment and new questions on CRA implementation.
For further information, please contact your Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs Regional Office on the attached list or the FDIC personnel listed on Page 54647 of the attached Federal Register notice.
