COVID-19: Webinar on Small Business & Housing Relief Updates

There have been significant updates to the federal response to COVID-19 which have far reaching implications for your community and your work. To help unpack and take a closer look at all the information, NCRC hosted a deep dive with speakers from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

This webcast offers the opportunity to hear from key staff at some of the nation’s agencies implementing the federal response to COVID-19, including the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), assistance for CDFIs, rental assistance and updates around federal mortgage loan forbearance, foreclosure and eviction moratoriums.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
