Become a Member of the California Reinvestment Coalition
CRC welcomes California mission-driven community organizations and government agencies to join the coalition.
Rise Economy is a trusted partner helping to support affordable housing and affordable homeownership for low-income communities. Just as we work to ensure that people have affordable places to live, Rise Economy promotes the economic stability people need to stay in that housing and to thrive - actively addressing the legacy of discriminatory investment to restore racial and economic equity throughout California
It’s incredibly important to have access to the decision-makers who have a significant impact on the communities we serve. Rise Economy provides a platform to share the experiences of the community members we serve, and allows us to be a changemaker and thought partner in bringing about the changes we want to see.
Rise Economy keeps us in the loop about policy issues related to financial institutions, CRA, and community economic development. By participating in Rise Economy-organized bank meetings, we ensure that the voices of small businesses and rural communities in the Central Valley are at the table. Rise Economy has been a critical partner as we advocate for more strategic investments in central California.
