Modernizing the Community Reinvestment Act: Ensuring Banks Meet the Credit Needs of Their Communities
Body

The Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation recently proposed updates to the regulations implementing the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), setting into motion a joint effort to modernize a key policy tool that encourages broader access to banking services.

Join the Urban Institute, leaders of the three federal banking regulatory agencies, and housing finance experts for a hybrid in-person and virtual event focused on the proposed regulations, the future of the CRA, and new Urban Institute research.

Enacted in 1977 to combat redlining, the CRA helps ensure federally insured banks meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. The proposed changes are the first significant interagency revision to CRA regulations in nearly 30 years.
