Keeping the ‘Community’ in the Community Reinvestment Act (Webinar)
April 1 @ 10:45 am - 11:45 amFree
Join Housing Action Illinois and Woodstock Institute to learn how to protect and strengthen the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) so it fulfills its initial purpose: to hold banks accountable to local community needs.
CRA is under threat by a proposal that could dramatically reduce the amount and impact of banks’ community development activities. We’ll cover what’s at stake and what you can do to protect this important law.
Congress passed the Community Reinvestment Act in 1977 as an antidote to discriminatory policies blocking non-white neighborhoods from bank loans, a practice known as “redlining.” It is our best tool to ensure that banks are adequately serving all people in their footprint.
