Community Reinvestment Act

KeyBank’s corporate mission is to help clients and communities thrive. For its ability to lend to, invest in and serve its communities, especially low-to-moderate income communities, KeyBank has earned eight “Outstanding” ratings from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), on the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) exam. Key was the first U.S. national bank among the 25 largest to be rated Outstanding eight consecutive times since the Act’s passage in 1977.
