(Webinar) Understanding Community Development Needs through the Performance Context

December 11, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Connecting Communities (Sponsored by the Federal Reserve System)

Session Description:

Robust community development research, or performance context, is an important part of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) examination process, as it identifies needs and opportunities that exist within low-and moderate-income neighborhoods. The performance context also creates a framework for evaluating a bank’s performance in meeting community needs. The intent of this session is to educate the public, particularly bankers and community-based organization representatives, on the content and potential use of the performance context—what it means and why it matters. Participants will hear from both a regulator and banker on what makes a good performance context and how that information can be used to tell a compelling story about CRA performance and maximize a bank’s intended impact.

Speakers include:

  • Jessica LeVeen Farr, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
  • Beth Trotter, IberiaBank
  • William Dowling, Moderator, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
