Of all the banks evaluated in the most recent CRA report only one, located in Bellaire, Oh, failed with a rating of "NI" which means "needs improvement". Three banks, however, located in MS, NE, and UT received a rating of "outstanding".
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), an institution created in 1933 to restore confidence in the banking system, issued a list of banks that were evaluated in January 2015 for compliance with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The CRA is a 1977 law designed to monitor the financial health of banks. In other words, it's a test of financial health. The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) mandated the public disclosure of CRA evaluations and the most recent evaluation was published last week. Here's a quick summary of what you will find.
In the Atlanta Region (AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, VA, WV) all 9 banks received a satisfactory grade.
In the Chicago Region (IL, IN, KY, MI, OH, WI) 14 out of the 15 banks received a satisfactory grade. Only Belmont Savings Bank in Bellaire, Ohio (see below) received a rating of "Needs To Improve".
