Community Reinvestment Act Public File

 

Community Reinvestment Act Overview

The Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”) was enacted in 1977. Its purpose was to encourage banks to help meet the credit needs of their local communities. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issued regulations in 1978 to provide guidance to national banks as to how they could satisfy their continuing and affirmative obligations to help meet the credit needs of their local communities, including low- and moderate- income housing neighborhoods, in concert with the safe and sound operations of those banks. Further assistance on compliance with CRA has been provided to banks in the form of joint interagency policy statements issued by the Federal Financial Institutions Enforcement Committee outlining assessment factors by which a bank’s CRA performance will be measured.

Bank of Holland’s mission is to provide financial services to our community and to promote economic growth and stability within the community. It is our policy to comply with all the applicable consumer protection and fair lending laws. No individual will be denied those services on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex (sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, actual or perceived nonconformity with traditional sex- or gender-based stereotypes, and applicant’s social or other associations), marital status, military status, age, handicap, familial status, receipt of public assistance, or the exercise, in good faith, of the rights under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. We recognize our responsibility to our community. We are a community bank, and we must contribute resources and leadership to help our community thrive.

Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rules and regulations of 2023 require that the Bank of Holland make available a Public File composed of the content available below. All content is made current as of April 1st of each year. Please contact us at (716) 537-2264 should you have any questions regarding the information provided.

  • Bank of Holland Fee Schedule
  • Community Outreach
    • Efforts to Ascertain the Community’s Credit Needs 

      We use our Board of Directors and our staff and management to assist in ascertaining our community’s credit needs. Our directors are all local business individuals who are active participants in the community. Our monthly Board meetings allow our directors to keep the bank informed about the business environment. Our staff and management are active in a variety of community organizations and are encouraged to bring information about the community back to the Bank. Staff and management attended community activities are reported monthly to the directors.

      In addition to these informal, but integral, methods of ascertaining the community’s credit needs, we have conducted customer product awareness and perception surveys in 9/1995, 3/1998, 4/2000 and 06/2004.

      Efforts to Meet Community Credit Needs
      We are currently open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Elma branch only has no Saturday hours. We have three (3) bank site ATM machines. In addition to these and to improve customer convenience, we also have an agreement with our affiliate, M&T Bank, for our customers to use their ATMs with no surcharge. M&T ATMs are located locally and throughout the United States with over 1,800 locations. Customers can obtain the location of an ATM by logging onto our website www.bankofhollandny.com and clicking on the link provided. To further improve our customer convenience, our most recent products are internet banking and mobile web banking. Customers can access their accounts from the comfort of their homes and do banking with transfers from one account to another, review statements and use our online bill pay service. In addition, customers may also access their accounts via their cell phone with internet access through their cellular provider. At their convenience use mobile banking and make a check deposit using remote capture.

      The bank’s products and services were in previous years and are currently (when applicable) advertised in a variety of local daily and weekly newspapers and/or penny savers, radio, customer statements, direct mail pieces and with outdoor boards.

      In the past, we assisted in the revitalization of downtown Holland by lending funds for the construction of handicapped access ramps along the business district on Main Street.
      In 2004 we contributed to the fund drive for the beautification project of East Aurora along Main Street. More recently, the bank financed a portion of the rehabilitation project of the Holland Girls and Boys Club. We also participate in local Kiwanis Clubs, Boys and Girls Clubs, local Chambers and sponsor various charitable events throughout the year. Our past and future sponsorship with the Aurora Ice Association (AIA) for the support of the Classic Rink on 41 Riley St in EA/NY, will help benefit the entire surrounding communities. Recently in 2018 we helped fund a complete update to the facilities in the Classic Rink. We also were involved with the funding for the enhancement of the EA Park with the completion of the Millard Fillmore statue to be displayed in 2019. Staff and management are involved in visiting local senior citizen homes or events to promote banking products and instruct on tips regarding how to avoid elderly abuse and fraud. We continue to sponsor our community of Holland with its annual Tulip Festival. In 2018 we celebrated 50 years of fun and excitement for the whole town something for all ages to enjoy.

      Most recently, in 2021 we assisted in the “Reaching Out Campaign” for the Rural Outreach Center (ROC) located at 730 Olean Road, EA, NY to build ROC Central. ROC helps people and families transform their lives and become whole. ROC is a place where children living in poverty are cared for as individuals. The ROC has resources to help children and families to begin to move on to a better place. A place of hope. A place where families are empowered to create change in their own lives and begin supporting hope in their children and break the cycle of generational poverty.

      We continue to support various organizations that support families/individuals in need that include income levels of low/moderate. Organizations included FeedMore Foundation of WNY, Boys & Girls Club of Holland and other various groups. We also continue to fund Rural Outreach Center who assist in helping families transform their lives and become whole.

      We base new loan product offering on the information we received from our customer survey and daily contact with our customers.

      We assess our progress in helping to meet our community’s credit needs. We base our Community Reinvestment Act Action Plan on this assessment.
