The OCC’s District Community Affairs Officers are available for one-on-one consultations with bankers to help them understand the types of activities that will meet the new CRA tests. Specifically, the District Community Affairs Officers can help to (1) explain what types of activities will qualify under CRA as community development lending, investment, and services; (2) review a bank’s current community development lending, investment, and services programs and provide ideas about activities eligible for CRA consideration; and (3) assist a bank in identifying community development partners as well as government programs that a bank may leverage to implement its CRA program.
