While there are many things to focus on at the moment, the deadline for submitting comments on the proposed amendments to the CRA is APRIL 8, 2020. There has been advocacy to push back, but so far no change has been made. The Network will be submitting our letter shortly – we have linked a template that you are welcome to review and use to incorporate your own comments as it relates to the work you do daily that will be affected by the proposed CRA amendments. ANHD has taken the lead for our New York City community and has encouraged the inclusion of impactful stories in the letters – i.e. instances of nonprofits and lending institutions collaborating on successful deals. More from ANHD on this topic here: https://anhd.org/project/community-reinvestment-act-advocacy.
