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.

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.
