2021 Report to LCNB's Communities

LCNB’S ACTIVITIES UNDER THE COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT

LCNB National Bank holds an overall Community Reinvestment act (CRA) rating of Satisfactory, from its May 2019 assessment, the Bank’s most recent by its chief regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The three primary areas of assessment (lending, investment, service) all scored as High Satisfactory. LCNB makes “a good distribution of loans among individuals of different income levels, and businesses and farms of different sizes”. LCNB “has also made a relatively high level of community development (CD) loans.”

In 2021, LCNB committed $3 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credit Investments.   The Bank also made a $2.5 million investment into mortgage-backed securities that directly support low/moderate income individuals or individuals who are located in low/moderate income census tracts.

LCNB National Bank will receive another CRA assessment from the OCC during 2022. The full 2019 CRA Performance Evaluation for LCNB National Bank is available upon request.

LCNB’s CRA-qualified donations touched all 10 counties in which the Bank has branch offices. Organizations receiving these funds during 2021 included:
  • The Ohio Scholars Program of the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges
  • EverFi, Inc., sponsoring Financial Literacy in schools in Warren, Franklin, and Preble Counties
  • Learn To Earn

In addition, LCNB employees provide CRA-qualified volunteer services by providing financial expertise to community development organizations. LCNB also provides financial services to several CRA-eligible non-profits.

SUPPORTING NUMEROUS CAUSES THROUGHOUT OUR FOOTPRINT

LCNB National Bank also traditionally supports other community organizations and causes that may not fall under CRA guidelines. These include involvements in education, the arts, law enforcement, youth athletics, public health, and fraternal organizations. Many of these organizations were not able to hold annual fund-raising events once again in 2021 due to pandemic-related restrictions, yet LCNB maintained its level of giving and involvement throughout the year.
