Prudential Regulators Issue Final Rule Revising CRA

On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, the Fed, OCC, and FDIC issued a final rule revising regulations implementing the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The final rule amended the definitions of “home mortgage loan” and “consumer loan” to align with changes to CFPB Regulation C, which implements the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). The final rule also amended CRA public file content requirements in effort to conform with Regulation C, makes technical amendments to remove cross references related to the proposed amended definitions, and removes an obsolete reference to the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
