Of the 42 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) evaluations of banks made public by the agency in July, seven resulted in “outstanding” ratings and two resulted in ratings of “needs to improve,” the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said Friday. The remaining 31 evaluations yielded ratings of “satisfactory,” the agency said.

Banks rated “needs to improve” include:

  • Canyon Community Bank, National Association (Tucson, Ariz.); and

Rated “outstanding” were:

  • Seacoast National Bank (Stuart, Fla.);
