(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)
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‚Äôs 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‚Äîwhat 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‚Äôs intended impact.
