Community Reinvestment Act (CRA)

The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA) provides a framework for financial institutions, state and local governments, and community organizations to jointly promote banking services to all members of a community. In a nutshell, the CRA

  • Prohibits redlining (denying or increasing the cost of banking to residents of racially defined neighborhoods), and
  • Encourages efforts to meet the credit needs of all community members, including residents of low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
