Kevin Hill is the Community Reinvestment Act Manager at NCRC. He has worked for NCRC for 4 years, and in that time he has helped manage successful community reinvestment campaigns that will put $82 billion, and counting, back into underserved communities. He is passionate about data analysis, research, and empowering community groups to advocate for themselves. Before coming to NCRC, Kevin grew up in impoverished neighborhoods in Fresno, CA where 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 graduate 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. He wrote a paper about his work that was published online by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in November 2013. He has also previously worked for the Greenlining Institute and in NCRC’s Minority Business Development Office in New York.

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.
