Q: § __.22(a)(2) – 5: Do institutions receive consideration for originating or purchasing loans that are fully guaranteed?
A: Yes. For all examination types, examiners evaluate an institution’s record of helping to meet the credit needs of its assessment area(s) through the origination or purchase of specified types of loans. Examiners do not take into account whether or not such loans are guaranteed.
