Application Filings and Notices

The Applications section within the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Supervision and Regulation Department is responsible for processing various types of applications received from bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs), state member banks and institution-affiliated parties.

Filing banking applications

FedEZFile is strongly recommended as the most efficient method of filing applications. FedEZFile is the Federal Reserve System’s single technology tool that offers an easy, immediate, and secure way for financial organizations supervised by the Federal Reserve Board, their authorized representatives, and individuals to:

  • Submit filings;
  • View the status of their filings;
  • Communicate with assigned Reserve Bank and/or Board analyst(s) and attorneys; and
  • Receive digitally signed correspondence from the Federal Reserve.

Below are links to the FedEZFile tool as well as the companion learning resource, FedEZFile Fluent.  FedEZFile Fluent, available without registration, contains videos and quick reference guides, which provide step-by-step instructions on how to register, submit a filing, and access filing information
