§__.29(a) Effect of Future Commitments on a Bank Application

§__.29(a) – 2

Q: What consideration is given to an institution’s commitments for future action in reviewing an application by those Agencies that consider such commitments?

A2. Commitments for future action are not viewed as part of the CRA record of performance. In general, institutions cannot use commitments made in the applications process to overcome a seriously deficient record of CRA performance. However, commitments for improvements in an institution’s performance may be appropriate to address specific weaknesses in an otherwise satisfactory record or to address CRA performance when a financially troubled institution is being acquired.
