Our Field Notes blog is a great way to hear about NCRC members and their work across the country. To submit your organization’s story for Field Notes consideration, please complete the following form.

Another way to learn about other NCRC member organizations is by interacting with other members in the Just Economy Forum.

A member who has set up an NCRC account can log into the members-only Just Economy Forum at this link using the same username and password. 

The Hub can be found under the Membership dropdown on our main website or at this link.

If you are not the primary contact on your organization’s NCRC membership, please make sure the primary contact has added you as a “team member” on the subscription. This will allow you to set up a login for the Just Economy Forum.

At this time, no. The login information connected to your NCRC membership account portal will not work for registering for NTA sessions. All individual staff members of an organization with NCRC membership must create their own accounts using the following link in order to register for NTA sessions. This is to help with the tracking of individual continuing education credits. For more information, please reach out to 202-524-4884 or training@ncrc.org.

This does not necessarily mean you are a member of NCRC. NCRC membership comes with additional benefits beyond NTA as well as annual dues. To become an NCRC member, sign up as an organization at the following link.

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.
