COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT NOTICE
Under the Federal Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), the Federal Reserve Board (Board) evaluates our record of helping to meet the credit needs of this community consistent with safe and sound operations. The Board also takes this record into account when deciding on certain applications submitted by us.
Your involvement is encouraged.
You are entitled to certain information about our operations and our performance under the CRA, including, for example, information about our branches, such as their location and services provided at them; the public section of our most recent CRA Performance Evaluation, prepared by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (Reserve Bank); and comments received from the public relating to our performance in helping to meet community credit needs, as well as our responses to those comments. You may review this information here today.
At least 30 days before the beginning of each quarter, the Federal Reserve System publishes a list of the banks that are scheduled for CRA examination by the Reserve Bank in that quarter. This list is available from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The Reserve Bank can be reached by calling 212-720-5000 or online at www.newyorkfed.org. You may send written comments about our performance in helping to meet community credit needs to Mr. Paul Lafata, VP & CRA Officer, BPD Bank, 90 Broad Street, New York, NY 10004. You may also send comments to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 33 Liberty Street, New York, NY 10045. Your letter, together with any response by us, will be considered by the Federal Reserve System in evaluating our CRA performance and may be made public.
