Learn how Community Affairs programs help to meet community credit needs.
The Community Affairs Program supports the FDIC’s mission to promote stability and public confidence in the nation’s financial system by promoting economic inclusion and community development initiatives that broaden access to safe and affordable credit and deposit services from insured depository institutions.
The Community Affairs Program:
- Provides information and technical assistance to encourage banks to be responsive to the credit and banking needs of the communities they serve, including low- and moderate-income people;
- Convenes banks, local and state governments, and community-based organizations to explore resources and promising practices;
- Develops and disseminates financial education tools for children and adults to banks, teachers, parents, emerging small businesses and non-profit training organizations;
- Supports pilot programs and alliances to expand financial capability and economic inclusion.
