Bank of Kansas was one of three Kansas-based banks to receive a satisfactory rating on its federal Community Reinvestment Act examination, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said in a news release Tuesday.
The South Hutchinson-based bank operates two branches in Wichita and is owned by Stillwater, Okla.-based Southwest Bancorp.
The two other Kansas banks to receive satisfactory ratings were Solomon State Bank in Solomon and Stanley Bank in Overland Park.
The CRA is a 1977 law that encourages banks and thrifts to provide loans to their local communities, including to low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
Banks can receive one of four grades from the FDIC: outstanding, satisfactory, needs to improve and substantial noncompliance.
