This network is a matchmaking service of the Wisconsin Economic Development Association (WEDA), which is a statewide non-profit organization focused on advancing community and economic development programming, professional educational training and public policy initiatives.
The CRA Network connects development organizations with community and economic development projects that may be eligible under the Community Reinvestment Act to potential funders. These projects will be focused in the following eligible areas: housing, workforce, community, economic, childcare facilities, small business development and disaster recovery that help to revitalize and stabilize communities.
For financial institutions, the CRA Network creates a match making tool to help financial institutions collaborate locally and statewide on Community Reinvestment Act eligible opportunities and strategies. Each application will be assessed for potential eligibility under the CRA criteria prior to being presented at regional CRA Network meetings.
