NCRC Community Reinvestment Act Training
Have you noticed a lack of banking opportunities in Southeastern Pennsylvania? Have you experienced branch closures? Are some lenders serving your community well while others are neglecting it? What can you do about this?
Community Reinvestment Act Basics
Join us for NCRC’s CRA 101 training and learn how the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) can be used to increase reinvestment in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Find out how banks are rated on CRA exams and how your comments can influence a bank’s CRA rating, lending and investments. Learn how to use data to measure bank performance and how organizations like yours can comment effectively to federal regulators.
Community organizations across the country have effectively used CRA to increase investment by financial institutions in underserved communities. This training will provide a foundational understanding of the CRA and how community organizations in Southeastern PA can use the law to ensure fair access to credit and capital for all.
Our purpose is to educate community organizations on how we can work together to use the law to reverse disinvestment, help develop new banking products and services for small business owners, drive funding in support of affordable housing, workforce development, and other economic development pillars to build a more inclusive economy. This training is convened in partnership with: Fair Housing Rights Center in Southeastern Pennsylvania Clarifi – Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Delaware Valley South Philadelphia H.O.M.E.S., Inc.
