UEDC/ CRA Proposal

This is a summary of complaints by UAAD pertaining to JPMorganChase Bank


A CRA Proposal From UNITED EQUITY DEVELOPMENT CORP (UEDC) To All Banks The State of Louisiana for Hurricane KATRINA Recovery.

UEDC an affiliate of UNITED AFFIRMATIVE ACTION DEVELOPMENT CORP (UAAD) a 501c3 non-profit propose to create a coalition of small and large banks in the state of Louisiana in order to provide low, moderate-income individual and small businesses to include African Americans (AA) the necessary funding in order to recover from KATRINA, and its aftermath.
The suggestions of the COMMUNITY RE-INVESTMENT ACT of 1977 (CRA) is that banks commit at least 10 percent of their assets toward CRA activities. These set asides can be in the form of low interest loans, or contributions.
CRA a part of the civil rights legislation of 1977 was created due to predatory lending, red-lining and discrimination on the part of our nation’s banks.

UAAD/UEDC will organize a coalition of banks, community organizations, in order to benefit the Hurricane victims. Such a coalition will benefit the banks, low, moderate-income to include AA. / http://www.bankwhileblack.com/

Although UAAD/UEDC has in excess of 20 years involvement in CRA, we are aware that the success of accomplishing our goals we will need a commitment from our nation’s banks, FDIC, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and as many community organizations that will join with us in order to assist the KATRINA victims and others. Our nation’s banks have in excess of $4.2 trillion dollars in CRA commitments. If the CRA ACT has any significance or purpose, now is the time for it to be implemented. See: http://www.uedcinc.com/

UEDC would like for those receiving the above document to review and comment. We are meeting with a local bank’s CRA official here in Ruston, LA to present this proposal. We propose a 5 year commitment of 10 percent of assets to be administered by UAAD and other established community organizations. We will be negotiating for UAAD and the coalition will require a reasonable percentage in advance to administer these programs.
See: http://www.uaadcrahbuc.blogspot.com/
We anticipate your in-put and participation.

UEDC will ask small banks to contribute administration assistance in lieu of cash contributions. Such contributions will be in the form of business consultation, serving on community loan committees, teaching CRA and banking in HBUC’s etc. Larger banks will be asked to contribute at least 10 percent of their assets toward these proposed projects for the next 5 years. We believe the FDIC/OCC will consider this proposal to be practical and meet the requirements of the bank(s) obligation to meet prudent banking practices as required under the Community Re-Investment Act of 1977 (CRA).
