Have you noticed a lack of banking opportunities in your community? Have you experienced branch closures? Are some lenders serving your community well while others are neglecting it? What can you do about this?
Join us for the National Community Reinvestment Coalition's (NCRC) CRA 101 workshop and learn how the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) can be used to increase reinvestment in Philadelphia neighborhoods. 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 to help your community during these times of tight budgets.
The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) was formed in 1990 by national, regional, and local organizations to develop and harness the collective energies of community reinvestment organizations from across the country so as to increase the flow of private capital into traditionally underserved communities.www.ncrc.org.
