Join us to learn more about the Federal Reserve Board’s recently announced Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) for the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The CRA is a seminal piece of legislation enacted to address systemic inequities in access to credit as part of a reinforcing set of laws to expand financial inclusion and combat redlining. The CRA ensures that federally insured banks and institutions meet the credit needs of the communities in which they are chartered and remains as important as ever in today’s circumstances.
During this session, speakers will discuss how the Federal Reserve Board’s ANPR seeks to strengthen, clarify, and tailor the CRA regulations to reflect the current banking landscape and better meet the core purpose of the CRA. In addition to providing an overview of the ANPR and highlighting its key features, speakers will also identify how individuals and organizations can comment on the ANPR.
