Community organizations often wonder how they can build or strengthen relationships with banks under bank Community Reinvestment Act obligations. This workshop will provide hands-on training on the basics of CRA requirements, how to define community development activities, how regulatory bank exams are conducted, and how to interact with banks to support community needs. Regional banks will discuss how they forge new community partnerships and recommend best practice strategies to consider when reaching out to banks.
