CCUSA Comments regarding Community Reinvestment Act

Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) submitted comments in
response to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) proposed
regulatory changes to the Community Reinvestment Act Regulatory Framework OCC-2018-0008.

CCUSA believes that any changes to CRA regulations must expand the current emphasis on providing new and preserving current affordable housing units. Any changes to the CRA must further strengthen investment in the Low-income Housing Credit Tax Credit as this resource is critical in the development of affordable housing.
