Cleveland Fed Connects the Dots Between Redlining and the CRA in the Community

This FedTalk event will focus on Community Reinvestment Act ties to redlining, the impact in the community, and how people can address redlining and its consequences today.



What: Our December FedTalk discussed ways the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) can be leveraged for greater impact. The law was established more than 40 years ago to prevent redlining, the discriminatory practice of denying people access to credit based on race. Now, the Fed is seeking to modernize the rules it uses to implement CRA, and we are continuing the conversation about this landmark legislation.

When: Wednesday, February 17, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm ET

Watch: The online webinar is available beginning at noon ET. The program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Audience Q&A will follow the presentation.
