ICBA Press Room

Did you know that there are more than 6,500 community banks across the nation? But what distinguishes a community bank from other financial institutions? Simple: personal service, local credit decisions and ownership, and reinvestment in the community.

Representing more than 24,000 locations nationwide and employing nearly 300,000 Americans, ICBA members hold more than $1.2 trillion in assets, $1 trillion in deposits, and nearly $750 billion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community. Located in small towns, suburbia and big-city neighborhoods, community banks improve the nation’s communities by lending to local customers and funding nearly 60 percent of all small businesses under $1 million.

Please contact us on issues related to consumer and small business lending, federal regulatory issues, the economy, housing, tax policy, and other financial services topics. We will provide you with information from the community banker perspective including interviews with ICBA staff experts to help you with your story.
