These ratings are not, nor should they be interpreted as an assessment of the financial condition of these institutions. The assigned ratings do not represent an analysis, conclusion, or opinion of the DOB concerning the safety and soundness of these financial institutions.

Public evaluations

The public portion of the evaluation generally contains:

  • The institution's CRA rating
  • A description of the financial institution
  • A description of the financial institution's assessment area
  • Conclusions about the institution's CRA performance, including the facts, data, and analyses that were used to form such conclusions

Most Massachusetts chartered banks are also examined for compliance with the Federal CRA by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Federal Reserve System.
