On July 10, the OCC launched an initiative to promote greater financial inclusion of underserved populations. Project REACh (Roundtable for Economic Access and Change) brings together leaders from the banking industry, national civil rights organizations, and various businesses and technology organizations who will identify and reduce barriers to accessing capital and credit. REACh program participants will focus on “inherent policy and structural issues at the national and local levels” to expand financial inclusion, and convened on July 10 to discuss which financial inclusion projects to address.
