New community development resource guide
FDIC FIL-26-2014 announces the availability of a new resource guide, Strategies for Community Banks to Develop Partnerships with Community Development Financial Institutions. The guide informs FDIC-supervised institutions of strategies to meet community credit and development needs and receive consideration under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) through collaboration with community development financial institutions (CDFIs). It also contains information to help community banks identify and evaluate opportunities to collaborate with CDFIs in providing financial products and services to underserved markets. The guide describes the key characteristics of CDFIs and the types of investments that can support them. It also discusses steps to consider when assessing bank/CDFI partnerships and how these activities may enhance CRA performance.
