Wells Fargo recognized for community reinvestment

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) announced this week that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. received an "outstanding" rating the highest regulatory rating possible in its most recent Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) examination by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., which serves more than 10 million households in 23 states, met and exceeded community needs in areas such as affordable housing, financial education and small business lending.

The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 requires banks to meet the credit needs of all the communities where they do business, especially low-to-moderate income communities and families.

Wells Fargo was recognized as "outstanding" in each of the exam’s three test categories: lending (mortgages, small business, community development for affordable housing and economic development); services (retail banking stores, alternative delivery channels and financial outreach); and investments (funding capital and grants to community organizations).

The examination period included CRA performance from Oct. 1, 2001 through Sept. 30, 2004.

In the investment test category, the OCC rated Wells Fargo’s investments and charitable contributions, totaling over $725 million as "outstanding," reflecting "an excellent level of responsiveness to the needs of its markets, especially affordable housing."
