It’s easy to begin the CRA Certification process. To get started, all you need to do is complete our online application. Then, we’ll review it to determine your nonprofit’s alignment with CRA. Within a few days, we’ll let you know your CRA Certification status. Once certified, you’ll gain access to important customized CRA tools for your nonprofit, an enhanced online profile, and the ability to list your community needs on findCRA. All of this positions you as the nonprofit a bank needs.
After you complete your application, you can submit it to us. The first time you submit an application, there is a $300 initial CRA certification fee which is nonrefundable. Each year, as long as your certification remains active, you’ll also be able to renew for only $150. We’ll provide you updated CRA tools to refresh your outreach to banks when you renew.
