In recent years, as the result of the decline in public finance investments in community development, many new opportunities have surfaced for banking institutions to more fully apply their lending and investing products and services to benefit low-income communities. Nowhere is this more evident than in Los Angeles where the need is great to fund supportive housing and social service practitioners working hard to reduce chronic homelessness for families and groups of individuals such as veterans, seniors, youth and single parents. Please join us for a forum designed for bankers to discuss the roles they can play through eligible Community Reinvestment Act activities.

You will learn from experts about: national and local plans and best practices for ending homelessness; how to finance permanent supportive housing; the benefits of investing and collaborating in existing homelessness programs and initiatives; and how bankers have benefitted by providing loans, investments, and services funding targeted at ending homelessness.
