Current law requires the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to assess bank performance regarding lending, investment and services in the communities in which they have a physical footprint. This webinar offers a conversation with two of the three bank regulators to help us learn more about how financial institutions are assessed regarding CRA performance, what activities are eligible for CRA consideration and discuss current efforts to make CRA work better for targeted neighborhoods and populations, as well as regulated financial institutions. When CRA was first enacted, there was no civil rights law, known as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), to promote equal opportunity and protection against discrimination for people with disabilities. In 2019, working-age adults with disabilities are participating in the workforce and contributing to the economy in record numbers. As the world of banking and financial services has changed, there is a large conversation now occurring about how to modernize CRA. This webinar will discuss how bank regulators can direct attention to the investment, lending and service needs of low- and moderate-income people with disabilities.
