Community Reinvestment Act
Webster believes that helping to meet the banking and credit needs of our neighbors and businesses is essential for the health of the communities we serve.
Strengthening our communities
We work closely with organizations whose programs serve low- and moderate-income residents and/or support small business development – especially those that focus on supporting women and minorities.
Our most recent Community Reinvestment Act Performance Evaluation resulted in an “Outstanding” rating. This rating, the highest possible, was given by our primary regulator, the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
