It’s easy to begin the CRA Certification process. To get started, all you need to do is submit your online application and initial payment. We’ll review your information to determine all aspects of your nonprofit’s alignment with CRA. Within 30 days, we’ll let you know your CRA Certification status. Once approved, we’ll equip you with customized tools and resources for your marketing content and outreach to banks, as well as an enhanced online profile and the ability to list specific requests for funding and support on findCRA’s Community Needs listing. All of this positions you as the nonprofit a bank needs.
After you complete your application, submit it to us and proceed to our online checkout. The first time you apply for CRA Certification, there is a $300 initial fee which covers processing costs and is nonrefundable. Each year, as long as your Certification remains active, you’ll be able to renew for only $150, and we’ll provide you updated CRA tools to refresh your outreach to banks.
