A ratio is the level of activity for a specific criterion divided by the institution’s overall performance in the generic activity that includes the specific criterion. The criteria to be considered for mortgage lending are the total mortgage lending made in low-to-moderate income areas in the District and the total mortgage lending made in low-to-moderate income areas by third parties and purchased by the bidding financial institution in the secondary market; for community development lending are the total lending activity to small businesses located in low-to-moderate income areas in the District and the total lending to small businesses located in low-to-moderate income areas in the District by third parties and purchased by the financial institution in the secondary market; and for financial services is the number of branches in low-to-moderate income areas in the District.

(c) The Mayor, or the CFO pursuant to § 47-351.02(c), shall assign the following weighing factors to the numerical scores given under the categories listed in subsection (b) of this section, to calculate the community development score for an eligible financial institution:

(1) Forty percent for mortgage lending;

(2) Forty percent for community development lending; and

(3) Twenty percent for financial services.
