A recent Letter to Federal Credit Unions details the recent development of fair lending educational and compliance tools and off-site supervision contacts to help federal credit unions comply with fair lending laws. The letter also explains the factors used to determine which federal credit unions will receive a fair lending exam or off-site supervision contact.

NCUA will provide advance written notification of the exam or off-site supervision contact to the federal credit unions selected.
