CRA Public File


Artisans’ Bank maintains a regulatory obligation to seek, understand, and actively help meet the credit and financial services needs of the communities the Bank serves, including the low- and moderate-income and minority-majority geographic sectors of our communities.  The Board of Directors, Officers, and Associates of Artisans’ Bank remain deeply committed to the spirit of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and demonstrate this commitment by promoting a roster of innovative and flexible consumer loan and consumer deposit products; by providing leadership and outreach to many non-profit agencies that serve these segments of our community; and by investing in assets that help support our community’s credit and financial service needs.
