CRA Notice

We are honored to have received an overall rating of "Outstanding" from the FDIC for our Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Performance Evaluation for over 25 years. This is the highest possible rating from the FDIC. It demonstrates our commitment to our customers and the community we serve.

Under the federal Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) evaluates our record of helping to meet the credit needs of this community consistent with safe and sound operations. The FDIC also takes this record into account when deciding on credit applications submitted by Iowa State Bank.

Your involvement is encouraged.

You are entitled to certain information about our operations and our performance under the CRA. You may review today the public section of our most recent CRA evaluation, prepared by the FDIC and a list of services provided.
