The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) implementing regulations and the Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Community Reinvestment (Q&As) provide definitions and information for determining whether a loan, investment or service qualifies for credit in a bank’s CRA examination. If you represent a bank or other interested party that is a stakeholder in a bank-related activity that you believe qualifies under CRA, you may use this form to request the OCC's review to verify qualification. This form is designed to accept information on only one activity. Confirmation of an activity for CRA purposes is not a determination of legal permissibility, and the OCC reserves the right to separately determine whether an activity is legally permissible. If you represent a financial institution, you must ensure that the activity is legally permissible before engaging in it. You must submit a separate form for each activity for the OCC's review.
To submit your CRA Qualifying Activity Confirmation Request by email:
