It has been nearly five years since the Great Recession began and it is an opportune time to look at some of Los Angeles’s historically underserved communities and the challenges they are currently facing. We have identified nonprofit community development organizations that have been serving these communities for over 20 years. This event will provide bankers with an opportunity to be updated and to engage in a dialogue on the current issues facing these communities.
The three federal banking regulators, the FDIC, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the OCC invite you to join us over breakfast at the spring 2012 Los Angeles CRA Roundtable as we host the leaders of several nonprofit community development organizations to share what is happening in specific Los Angeles neighborhoods. We will learn about the current focus of their services and programs along with the challenges and resource gaps that exist. This is a “Bankers Only” event.
