Summary: H.R.6206 — 102nd Congress (1991-1992)All Information (Except Text)
Introduced in House (10/06/1992)
Community Credit Improvement Act of 1992 - Title I: Community Credit Availability Improvements - Amends the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA) to direct the appropriate Federal financial supervisory agencies to jointly develop a format for collecting data from regulated financial institutions in connection with examinations of their record of meeting the credit needs of their local communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
Includes the following among the data required: (1) home mortgage lending; (2) small business lending; (3) community development; (4) consumer loans; and (5) branch closures.
Prescribes guidelines under which the appropriate Federal financial supervisory agencies, as part of their written evaluations of the institutions under their purview, must actively solicit comments from affected community members, with particular emphasis upon low- and moderate-income and minority residents.
Amends the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act of 1975 to include among the required public disclosures of depository institutions located in specified metropolitan statistical areas the number and total dollar amount by census tract of small business loans and of personal loans to consumers.
Amends the CRA to require financial institutions to be rated on the adequacy of their record of meeting community credit needs. Precludes such institutions from receiving a rating unless they have actually extended significant amounts of credit in low-income neighborhoods, and not merely been in compliance with a plan for extending such credit in the future.
Title II: Community Support Requirements - Sets forth certain community support requirements for private mortgage insurance companies, including a biennial report to the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (the Secretary) on the availability of, and underwriting guidelines for, mortgage insurance policies for low- and moderate-income families within those areas in which the companies write a significant number of mortgage insurance policies.
Directs the Secretary to establish within the Department of Housing and Urban Development the Office of Private Mortgage Insurance Company Oversight to conduct biennial community support reviews of private mortgage insurance companies.
Title III: Pattern or Practice - Amends the CRA to require the appropriate Federal financial supervisory agency to deny an application for a deposit facility by a regulated financial institution if the institution has exhibited a pattern or practice of opening or closing branches in a way that tends to exclude low- and moderate-income or minority communities.
