UNHP Forum: The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) at 40 Years Old
Thursday, Jun 28, 2018
8:30AM - 11:00AM

The Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition (NWBCCC), a grass roots organizing effort that encompassed the neighborhoods from the Cross Bronx Expressway to the County line, was created in 1974 at a time when the City of New York was in a deep financial crisis and housing abandonment was rampant. The NWBCCC Reinvestment Committee was formed to address “redlining”, the refusal of lenders and insurance companies to lend or insure in “certain” areas. Tenant and community leaders became actively involved in Congressional passage of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) of 1977— which aimed to hold financial institutions accountable for their investment (or lack thereof) in communities — as well as in local efforts to get the City to target more resources toward the preservation and renovation of both City-owned and privately held apartment buildings. The success of the community organizing and community development work in the northwest Bronx and the implementation of the CRA are not coincidental.

Our forum will discuss the importance of this connection years ago, but will also look at the continued importance of the CRA act and appropriate bank investment in a northwest Bronx with very different needs. The Forum is timely in that there are a number of bank regulatory reforms that are under consideration that will have a long-lasting impact on the Community Reinvestment Act. In addition, there are legislative and regulatory changes that would make CRA more effective in a Bronx that has changed dramatically since the 1970’s.
