Community Investments

2002 marks the silver anniversary of CRA legislation and the twenty-year anniversary for the Community Affairs function at the Fed. During this period the regulation has undergone a number of modifications to make it more responsive to the needs of the consumer and less burdensome for financial institutions. As the regulation has evolved, so have the products and services we have provided to help you understand and respond to the opportunities available for community reinvestment.
