Investment Connection

Investment Connection brings together nonprofit organizations, bankers, foundations, and public and private funders in the regions served by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond to explore community development opportunities that fit their mission, especially in low- and moderate-income, distressed and underserved communities. The Richmond Fed serves Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., North Carolina, South Carolina and most of West Virginia. Investment Connection was launched in the Maryland-Washington D.C. region and is expanding in 2020 to parts of Virginia.

Peter Dolkart and Tiffany Hollin-Wright with the Richmond Fed share information in the replay of this recent webinar about the March 30 – May 1 application window for Investment Connection. The webinar was hosted by the Virginia Association of Community Banks (VACB) and the Community Reinvestment Coalition of Virginia (CRCVA).
