Project Description:

The Here to Stay initiative is focused on providing financial education and advocacy that promotes fair, equitable banking practices for unbanked and underbanked low-income immigrant families, along with addressing the challenges of financial inclusion and access to safe, affordable banking resources. As a result, this program will promote access to affordable, culturally competent banking products and services that advance economic opportunity for immigrants; and identify innovative solutions that remove barriers to financial inclusion while protecting vulnerable communities from asset-stripping financial practices, such as payday loans and high-cost bank fees.
