HAC Applauds OCC Rescinding 2020 CRA Rule

HAC submitted comments in response to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) proposal to rescind its June 2020 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rule. HAC applauds the OCC’s move to rescind and replace this rule, and we look forward to working together in the future to improve and modernize the CRA in a way that equitably serves rural places.
