FDIC Hosts Inclusive Small Business Support in Southwestern Pennsylvania

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will host a webinar featuring presenters from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, Neighborhood Allies, and Catapult Pittsburgh, who will describe the services they offer to small businesses, specifically addressing the ways their work reduces barriers to success for the entrepreneurs they serve. The Office of Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will describe how this work may receive positive consideration under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). Participants will learn how they may expand their reach by developing and/or expanding partnerships to support the small business lending ecosystem.
