Why is strengthening the Community Reinvestment Act so important?
Banks have the ability to spark change, positive or negative, in a community. The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was created to ensure that financial institutions are catalysts for positive change by requiring them to reinvest in their communities.

BAR applauds the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)’s decision last month to rescind its 2020 changes to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) which greatly weakened protections for low- and moderate-income individuals and families. The decision to collaborate with the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in the process of updating the CRA is a step in the right direction.

“A stronger and modernized Community Reinvestment Act should also be a tool to bridge and end the racial wealth divide, and that objective should be baked into the entire financial system and into all the laws, regulations and investments that will shape not only our pandemic recovery but the quality of life for millions of families for generations to come.” – Jesse Van Tol, CEO of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC)
