Kevin Hill is the Community Reinvestment Act Coordinator. While growing up in moderate income neighborhoods in Fresno, CA he learned firsthand of the need for reinvestment in urban communities. He earned a Masters in Political Science from San Francisco State University where he focused on issues affecting the low to moderate income. After grad school he took an Americorp VISTA assignment to create a coalition that would use the Community Reinvestment Act to increase resources into California’s San Joaquin Valley. His term culminated in a unique matchmaking event for nonprofits and financial institutions which resulted in significant funding increases for participating nonprofits. He wrote a paper about his work which was published online by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in November 2013.
After his VISTA term, Kevin was hired by the Greenlining Institute as their San Joaquin Valley Coordinator. During his time there he was able to form a coalition of local minority business organizations that continues to work for increases in workforce and supplier diversity from key local institutions.
