Small business and small farm lending is important to Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) success regardless of bank asset size: small bank, intermediate small or large bank. Identifying those loans and preparing the data for audits, examinations or your annual submission is a critical step toward CRA success.

We will review requirements and best practices, including:
  • Identifying small business and small farm loans
  • What loans to not for profits would be small business loans?
  • Refinances, renewals, and modifications for CRA - are the rules the same as HMDA?
  • Testing your geographic loan penetration
  • What if your bank does not make small business or small farm loans?
  • Understanding credit needs in your assessment area
  • What is your inside ratio vs your outside ratio?
  • What tracts are you lending in, what tracts are you not lending in and why not?
  • Geocoding - should every bank geocode its loans?
  • When would presenting consumer purpose loans be helpful in an examination?
  • How to determine Gross Annual Revenue for small business and small farm loans
