EHL, EOL, Which is Right?

Answered by: 

Question: 
If we run an ad in the paper, does it need to say we are an "Equal Opportunity Lender" or an "Equal Housing Lender?" We've seen both.
Answer: 

First, the logo that should be used includes text and the house with the equal sign in it. This is often referred to as the dog house.

National banks are not required to use the dog house with the words Equal Housing Lender or Equal Opportunity Lender, but it is a best practice to use one or the other. FRB banks should use the house with EHL. FDIC, OTS and NCUA FIs can use either. You can find logos in the BOL Banker Tools
