Notifications Related to Community Development and Public Welfare Investments of State Member Banks Pursuant to Section 208.22 of Regulation H

The statutory provision authorizes SMBs to make investments designed primarily to promote the public welfare to the extent permissible under state law and subject to regulation by the Board. Regulation H permits SMBs to make certain public welfare investments without prior approval so long as the aggregate of such investments does not exceed 5 percent of the capital stock and surplus of the SMB, the bank is well capitalized and well managed, and the investment does not expose the SMB to liability beyond the amount of the investment.


Capital Assessments and Stress Testing
The FR Y-14A report collects detailed data on bank holding companies' (BHCs) and intermediate holding companies' (IHCs) quantitative projections of balance sheet assets and liabilities, income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic scenarios and qualitative information on methodologies used to develop internal projections of capital across scenarios. The report is comprised of Summary, Macro Scenario, Regulatory Capital Instruments, Regulatory Capital Transitions, Operational Risk, Business Plan Changes, and Retail Repurchase Exposures schedules, each with multiple supporting sub-schedules. The number of schedules a respondent must complete is subject to materiality thresholds and certain other criteria. Respondents report projections on the FR Y-14A schedules across supervisory scenarios as well as firm-defined scenarios. One or more of the macroeconomic scenarios includes a market risk shock that the firm will assume when making trading and counterparty loss projections. Respondents are also required to submit qualitative information supporting their projections, including descriptions of the methodologies used to develop the internal projections of capital across scenarios and other analyses that support their comprehensive capital plans.

Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Associated with Loans Secured by Real Estate Located in Flood Hazard Areas Pursuant to 208.25 Regulation H
Regulation H requires state member banks to notify a borrower and servicer (person responsible for receiving scheduled payments from a borrower or making payments of principal and interest and other payments from the amounts received from the borrower) when a loan is secured by real estate that is determined to be in a designated flood hazard area. For such loans, the state member bank must then notify the borrower and servicer whether flood insurance is available. The state member bank must also notify the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) of the identity of, and any change of, the servicer of the loan. Last, the bank must retain a copy of the Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form used to determine whether the property securing a loan is in a designated flood hazard area.
