Southeast Michigan Alliance for Economic Inclusion

The Southeast Michigan Alliance for Economic Inclusion (SEM AEI) serves Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, and Macomb Counties.  The SEM AEI aspires to be the trusted network in Southeast Michigan for empowering communities by promoting access to safe/affordable financial information and services and bringing unbanked and underbanked populations into the financial mainstream. 

The SEM AEI coalition represents over 90 organizations, including financial institutions, community organizations, local and state government agencies, universities, and other key community stakeholders.  The SEM AEI’s three core areas of focus include: increasing access to mainstream financial products and services; building responsible credit; and expanding financial education programs including identifying alternative delivery channels.

The full SEM AEI membership meets periodically. Each member is invited to participate in one of the Expressions of Interest Groups that are aligned with the three core areas. Expression of Interest Group members meet as needed. The Expression of Interest Group meetings promote continued member engagement through dialogue and planning between membership meetings.  Members can get involved with the SEM AEI by attending membership meetings or volunteering to serve on the Expression of Interest Groups.
