Boston Alliance for Economic Inclusion
The Boston AEI covers the majority of the Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The mission of the Boston AEI is to enhance the economic well-being of the unbanked and underbanked in metropolitan Boston by improving their access to the mainstream banking system, promoting financial education, and addressing technical or regulatory issues surrounding these developments.
Members largely represent financial institutions, community organizations, and government at all levels. Membership is open to all who share FDIC’s interest in Economic Inclusion. It has 370 members.
The Boston AEI informs and educates its members about the business opportunities represented by improved access to mainstream financial services by unbanked and underbanked individuals and families; and identifies and solves issues and obstacles associated with new product or service development. It also encourages a continuing commitment by leaders in all sectors to take positive action in response to these opportunities
The Boston AEI Open Work Group meets regularly to discuss issues of interest and identify responses. Periodic informational forums feature guest speakers addressing issues of common interest, and updates about on-going activity. Members can get involved with the AEI by attending the periodic informative forums or volunteering to serve on the Open Work Group.
