COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT INSTITUTE
2008 Program Outline
WHAT IS THE INSTITUTE?
The institute is a series of interactive sessions over a three (3) month period designed to train individuals about the Community Reinvestment and Home Mortgage Disclosure Acts, Financial Literacy, and Predatory Lending.
The City of Dayton, along with local financial institutions, sponsors the Dayton Community Reinvestment Institute (CRI), which started in 1995. The Institute has received national recognition from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) for its outstanding efforts in education and empowering citizens to use and understand the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).
The federal CRA established laws and procedures to assist communities, small businesses, organizations, and individuals with addressing lending and lending disparities. Dayton has a long history of working with citizens, local leaders and financial institutions to enhance lending opportunities throughout the community.
The Dayton Human Relation Council works with the University of Dayton's Center for Business and Economic Research to collect and analyze data, available through CRA, to evaluate lending patterns in Dayton. This data is made available to participants. Recent data continues to indicate lending disparities between the central city and suburbs.
Goals of the Community Reinvestment Institute:
- To educate a cadre of individuals to understand the Community Reinvestment and Home Mortgage Disclosure Acts.
- To encourage citizens to evaluate lender performance.
- To examine predatory lending.
- To review community and lender initiated reinvestment plans.
- To serve as a forum for constructive dialogue and discussion regarding capital, credit and insurance needs in Dayton neighborhoods and small businesses.
