Displaying Equal Housing Lender Logo

Answered by: 

Question: 
I once read something that stated the Equal Housing Lender logo (EHL) should be displayed anywhere a home loan application is received. Should a national bank have the EHL logo displayed on each loan officer/customer service desk where home loan applications are received or is the lobby poster sufficient?
Answer: 

Here's some information about the EHL Poster (referencing all banking agencies) from our Deposit Operations Desk Top Reference Manual. You can find the Manual in the BOL Store.

This regulation [Section 6-1500(2)(a) (Federal Reserve), Part 338.4 (FDIC), 24 CFR 109 (OCC), Part 528.5 (OTS)] requires institutions to display the poster in a central location within the bank where deposits are received or where home loans are made in a manner clearly visible to the public entering the area. The poster is not required at ATMs or drive-up windows. The poster should provide the name and address of the institution’s primary regulatory agency (FDIC, Federal Reserve, OCC, or OTS). The poster must be eleven inches by fourteen inches.
