TREAS/OCC RIN: 1557-AC86 Publication ID: Fall 2004 
Title: Community Reinvestment Act Regulations 
Abstract: OCC, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve (Board), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of Thrift Supervision (the agencies) are considering issuing a joint rulemaking to conform the agencies' regulations implementing the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) to changes in: the Standards for Defining Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas published by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in December 2000; census tracts designated by the U.S. Bureau of the Census (Census); and the Board's Regulation C (12 CFR part 203), which implements the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). The agencies also would make a technical correction to an incorrect cross-reference within the CRA regulations. This rulemaking is technical in nature and will make no substantive changes in the requirements of the CRA regulations because the changes made by OMB, Census, and the Board already have become effective. Beginning January 1, 2004, financial institutions had to use OMB's statistical area standards, Census' geographies, and the Board's Regulation C when adjusting assessment area delinations and collecting CRA loan data. This rule simply conforms OCC regulations to the current practices of financial institutions.
