On Thursday, November 12th, the St. Louis Equal Housing and Community Reinvestment Alliance (SLEHCRA) will be presenting our 2015 Report to the Community.
SLEHCRA’s Report to the Community includes findings from a survey of area banks on how they are meeting the needs of the community. Survey responses capture new developments in the following topics:
-New Branch Locations in low- or moderate-income neighborhoods.
-Community Development Lending and Investments
-New Financial Products for Low to Moderate Income Customers
-Marketing Outreach to Communities of Color
This year’s report will look at changes in the St. Louis metropolitan area’s banking community that have happened in the past three years. Findings also includes a report on the outcomes from SLEHCRA’s work.
The purpose of this report is to recognize the significant improvements in how the needs of low-income communities and communities of color are being met by banks, while also providing examples of best practices in order to continue the trend of improving performance.
The event is free and open to the public. It will take place at the O’Fallon Park Recreational Complex (4343 W. Florissant), in Meeting Room A/B. The event will take place from 4pm-6pm, allowing for both the presentation and social time. Light refreshments will be served.
