The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Qualified Investment Fund CRA Shares (Ticker: CRAIX) were created to help banks garner positive consideration on the Investment Test portion of their CRA exams. The CRA, created in 1977, mandates that banks make capital available to the low- and moderate-income communities which they serve.
Out of approximately 850 CRA exams, every shareholder has earned positive consideration for their investment in the Fund.*
