Reinvesting in Our U.S. Communities

In 2008, TD Bank received an “Outstanding” Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) performance rating from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The “Outstanding” rating reflects our commitment to meeting the financial service needs of low- and moderate-income individuals and neighbourhoods and small businesses.

- Financed more than 59,000 small business loans totalling $8.2 billion;
- Financed 261 community development loans totalling $424 million (145 of these loans provided $318 million in support of affordable housing projects);
