Community Reinvestment Act Notice
Under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), the Commissioner of Banks (Commissioner) or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) evaluates our record of helping to meet the credit needs of this community consistent with safe and sound operations. The Commissioner and FDIC also takes this record into account when deciding on certain applications submitted by us.
Your involvement is encouraged.
You are entitled to certain information about our operations and our performance under the CRA, including, for example, information about our branches, such as their location and services provided at them; the public section of our most recent CRA Performance Evaluation, prepared by the Commissioner and FDIC; and comments received from the public relating to our performance in helping to meet the credit needs, as well as our responses to those comments. You may review this information today.

That list is available from the DSC Regional Director, Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs, FDIC, 20 Exchange Place, New York, New York 10005.
