Community Service Action Plan Commitment
The Union Bank Board of Directors approves the bank's Community Service Action Plan (CSAP), which is used to ensure the bank's compliance with Community Reinvestment Act requirements. The bank also meets semiannually with community groups to discuss the bank's performance.
The CSAP targets seven key areas for support and services: affordable housing, banking services, community outreach, corporate contributions, low-income consumer loans, small business loans and assistance, and supplier diversity.
|Key Areas||Union Bank Actions|
