EITC event in Georgetown at First State CAA: Glenn Rollins, IRS; Wanda Lopez, United Way Delaware; Rev. Clifford Johnson, Pres. Nehemiah Gateway CDC; Rashmi Rangan, Exec Dir, DCRAC; US Rep. John Carney; Bernice Edwards, Exec Dir First State CAA
To ensure equitable treatment and equal access to credit and capital for the under-served populations and communities throughout Delaware through advocacy, education, legislation, and outreach.
We were founded in 1987 because a study of Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data revealed that African Americans were more than seven times more likely to be denied home mortgages than white Americans. While we continue our role as CRA advocates (our mission focus), we have built a constituent base by remaining market centered. We have continued to launch new and creative initiatives designed to make DCRAC relevant in the lives of thousands of Delawareans. In 2007, we became the first Delaware nonprofit to be awarded the Seal of Excellence from the National Standards for Excellence Institute. In 2011, our application to charter Stepping Stones Community Federal Credit Union was approved by the National Credit Union Administration. Link to our most recent annual audit, annual report, and form 990.
