Data on small business, small farm, and community development lending reported by certain commercial banks and savings associations under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is being made available by the three federal banking agencies, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) said Tuesday.

The Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) are making the data available, according to the FFIEC.

An FFIEC disclosure statement on the reported 2016 CRA data is available in electronic form, the FFIEC said, for each reporting commercial bank and savings association. The FFIEC also has prepared aggregate disclosure statements of small business and small farm lending for all of the metropolitan statistical areas and nonmetropolitan counties in the United States and its territories.
