  5. Disaster Area Recovery Banks can play a role in the recovery, rebuilding and resilience of a designated disaster area (DDA) and receive favorable CRA consideration • Activity considered “community development” if related to disaster recovery and if it helps to attract new or retain existing businesses or residents within DDA. • Must provide long-term benefit to area. • Activity is presumed to revitalize or stabilize if consistent with a bona fide government revitalization, stabilization, or disaster recovery plan. • CRA consideration for up to 36 months after disaster designation date.

  7. Disaster Recovery:Examples of Qualifying Activities Qualifying activities may include the following, as long as they include LMI individuals: • providing financing to help retain businesses in the area that employs local residents • providing financing to attract a major new employer that will create long-term job opportunities • providing financing or other assistance for essential community-wide infrastructure, community services, and rebuilding needs • activities that provide housing, financial assistance, and services to individuals in DDAs and to individuals who have been displaced from those areas

  8. Designated Disaster Areas Activities to Consider: • Waiving ATM fees for customers and non‐customers • Increasing ATM daily cash withdrawal limits • Waiving overdraft fees • Waiving early withdrawal penalties on time deposits • Reducingavailability restrictions on insurance checks • Easing restrictions on cashing out‐of‐state and non‐customer checks • Easing credit card limits and credit terms for new loans • Allowing loan customers to defer payments • Waiving late fees for credit card and other loan balances • Delaying the submission of delinquency notices to the credit bureaus

Designated Disaster Areas CRA Performance Evaluation – How much weight is given? • Greater weight given to those activities that are most responsive to community needs, including those for LMI individuals or neighborhoods • Banks located outside the designated disaster areas may receive positive CRA consideration for activities that revitalize or stabilize the designated disaster must first adequately meet the CRA-related needs of its assessment area • Banks may provide CRA-related activities directly or through a third party
