ADVANCING INCLUSIVE ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

NCRC’s Race, Wealth & Community division seeks to grow and transform wealth building opportunities to end historical economic inequality.

We’re aiming for a society where wealth and its growth advance the nation as a whole, including historically disenfranchised racial and ethnic groups.

We investigate fair housing and fair lending practices, provide education, training, counseling and coaching to entrepreneurs, legal and community advocacy and direct services to promote economic security and a more holistic understanding of wealth creation focused on the public good.
