Cover Art for 2016 MDI Report to CongressSection 308 of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) established the following goals: to preserve the number of minority depository institutions; to preserve the minority character in cases involving merger or acquisition of a minority depository institution; to provide technical assistance to help prevent insolvency of minority depository institutions; to promote and encourage creation of new minority depository institutions; and to provide for training, technical assistance and educational programs for minority depository institutions.

Pursuant to Section 367 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, this report provides a summary profile of minority depository institutions (MDIs) as of the end of 2016; a description of the FDIC’s minority depository institution program; and detailed information on the FDIC’s 2016 initiatives supporting minority depository institutions. The FDIC defines an MDI as (1) any Federally insured depository institution where 51 percent or more of the voting stock is owned by minority individuals; or (2) where a majority of the Board of Directors is minority and the community that the institution serves is predominantly minority. Ownership must be by U.S. citizens or permanent legal U.S. residents to be counted in determining minority ownership. The FDIC’s Policy Statement Regarding Minority Depository Institutions (see Attachment 1) provides additional information.
