MCBC Fall 2017 Bulletin released
November 16, 2017
Passed in 1977, the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) celebrates its fortieth anniversary this fall. CRA ensure that banks meet the credit needs of communities in which they operate, many of them traditionally underserved. The mission of MCBC depends on the legacy and foundation of CRA, that financial institutions and community organizations can work together to enhance opportunity in low and moderate income communities and communities of color.
Whether you are new to CRA or a seasoned professional, MCBC has a way for you to get involved to ensure that CRA continues to have a positive impact. Join us for a CRA Basics training for community development professionals in December or our Changing Patterns XXIV Forum in January. And Save the Date for an exciting event with Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law. Sign up to have your Financial Institution participate in Basic Banking for Massachusetts or join MCBC as a Financial Institution Member. Learn more about the benefits below.
And as always, check out the Community Reinvestment Digest News to stay current and get connected from the comfort of your own desk.
Happy 40th CRA!
