"On The Road"

Superintendent McCaul toured New York State to learn of successful partnerships in various communities between financial institutions and community groups and to encourage new partnerships in underserved areas. The focus of the tours was to promote community and neighborhood reinvestment, including housing, small business initiatives, and affordable childcare.

"These tours are very important for financial institutions, local government and community groups to discuss specific needs in their communities and to create partnerships that will help to make New York a better place to live, work, and raise a family."

Cypress Hills, Brooklyn
Superintendent McCaul witnessed first hand the result of investments made by the Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation (LDC) and HSBC Bank USA. The tour highlighted a childcare center, newly renovated homes, an employment center, and a proposed site for a mini-mall.

The Northwest Bronx
The Superintendent teamed up with JPMorganChase to tour the Northwest Bronx with members of the University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP).

"Pooling the financial and technical resources of banks to support affordable housing redevelopment is not only important for the those living in this community, but is a stabilizing force in communities throughout New York State. The fact that UNHP and Chase are working together to create affordable and high quality daycare throughout their community is just what we need in the new millennium. We want other banks to be involved in more communities, participating and advocating childcare. Not only will banks contribute tremendous benefits to their local communities, but they can obtain CRA credit as well."
