CRA Community First Awards
The First Bank Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Community First Awards Program recognizes our employees’ service contributions to CRA-qualified organizations. Community First Awards are earned by volunteering time towards CRA-qualified activities supporting one of the following criteria for low-to-moderate-income individuals:
- Affordable housing
- Community services
- Economic development
- Neighborhood Stabilization Program
Awards have three levels of recognition:
- Gold (100 hours or more of volunteer service)
- Silver (50 to 99 hours of service)
- Bronze (25 to 49 hours)
In honor of their outstanding volunteer spirit in 2016, 64 First Bank employees company-wide received First Bank CRA Community First Awards. Bank-wide (Missouri, Illinois, and California), these 64 recognized employees spent 4,882 hours volunteering in their communities. They showed a passion and spirit for giving that only comes from the heart.
