    Popular FOIA Requests

    Popular FOIA documents are those that have been the subject of previous requests and appear to be of broad public interest. These documents are listed throughout the Web site. Where possible, full databases have been constructed for Web access. These include databases showing Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Performance Evaluations, enforcement actions (including removals/prohibitions) taken against bankers and national banks, and the Weekly Bulletin, which lists all corporate applications received by the OCC nationwide and is updated weekly. As corporate applications become available electronically, they will be posted here. Requests for these should be directed to FOIA-PA@occ.treas.gov.
