At some time in your relationship-building efforts, you may have been encouraged to consider pursuing “CRA funding” or heard that the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is a great way to talk to banks about supporting your organization.
In recognition of that, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago are hosting a four-part, web-based discussion series on how community organizations and local government can develop bank collaborations that address the credit, service and investment needs of their communities.
