It can be difficult for community-based organizations to fund projects and programs. But if they’re eligible for investment under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), that could give them an edge. The CRA encourages banks to support community development initiatives in low- and moderate-income communities. This legislation has been an important tool for driving innovation in partnerships and delivery models and increasing funding to eligible projects.
Join us for a discussion with community-based organizations and bankers who have successfully worked together by developing CRA-eligible project proposals through the Federal Reserve’s Investment Connection program. During the webinar, you’ll gain an understanding of how to identify potential partners, develop mutually supportive relationships, and shape proposals that speak to the needs of organizations and funders alike.
