In 2018, NCRC and hundreds of its members led a nationwide campaign called #TreasureCRA, urging the administration and the federal bank agencies to strengthen the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). We still have big questions about the changes needed to keep pace with technology and the transforming financial industry. We will have a lively discussion among banks, community groups and regulatory officials on what is the fate of assessment areas and branches on CRA exams. What activities and financing should count on CRA exams and to which demographic groups? How can grading become more rigorous? How can we elevate community group input on exams and merger applications?
