This course will discuss disclosure and reporting requirements on banks and other insured depository institutions with respect to certain agreements related to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) as imposed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The CRA Sunshine statute requires certain CRA-related agreements to be publicly disclosed and reported upon annually.
The Community Revetment Act has been in effect for several years. One of the sections of the Act discusses the fact that banks can count as a positivity activity monies, in-kind payments, and activity that can have monetary activity/value. As the Act matured and CRA related activity increased, a need to have both the entity providing the CRA related activity and the bank receiving the activity accurately report this activity was identified. The result was the CRA Sunshine Act which included detailed, required reporting guidelines. This webinar will discuss the requirements of the Act.
If your financial institution is required to comply with the requirements of the Community Reinvestment Act, it is important for you to understand the disclosure and reporting requirements for certain agreements related to the CRA required by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). This course will discuss what agreements are covered by GLBA, what disclosure and reporting requirements are addressed in the act, what policies, procedures, and practices your institution should develop to ensure compliance with the act, and the implications of non-compliance with the act.
