The National Community Reinvestment Coalition's mission is to increase fair and equal access to credit, capital, banking services and financial products because discrimination is illegal, unjust and detrimental to the economic growth of low to moderate-income communities in the U.S. and around the world. NCRC seeks to support, create and implement long-term solutions by providing tools and strategies for building community and the economic security of low and moderate income families. Our programs include on-going investigations of lenders, advocacy in response to critical issues, foreclosure and pre-purchase counseling to consumers, and a business consulting division that works with minority and women-owned businesses.
