Ensuring equitable access to legal and financial services
Enacted in 1977, the Community Reinvestment Act encourages banks to help meet the credit needs of their communities, especially in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods where residents may not have access to traditional banking establishments. The motivating force behind DCRAC’s founding, the CRA further enables advocates like us the opportunity to push public policy in the right direction and hold the big banks accountable.
DCRAC’s relationships with community partners ensure we can connect every client to the right services, resources, and people. Our friends and neighbors include the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, Delaware Division of Libraries, Taxpayer Advocate Service, Wilmington HOPE Commission, West End Neighborhood House, Central Baptist Community Development Corporation, Nehemiah Gateway Community Development Corporation, Legal Services Corporation of Delaware, and others.
