National CAPACD will hold a press conference with U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Financial Services, to release the groundbreaking report, Scrimping + Saving.
National CAPACD seeks a collaborative, highly organized, and flexible individual to organize teams of member organizations across the U.S. to move forward a community development/community control advocacy agenda while implementing related programs. We believe that community residents and stakeholders – particularly low-income residents and people of color – should have more power and control over the physical, social, cultural, political, and economic future of their neighborhoods. Towards these ends, this position will require work with local, community-based nonprofit organizations around implementing and coordinating programming related to neighborhood planning and development, community organizing, and policy advocacy fighting gentrification and displacement.
Headquartered in Washington, National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development released a report after surveying fourteen different Asian American immigrant communities on financial services. The report ound that non-English-speaking families are more likely to be financially vulnerable. Most Chinese immigrants do not know their credit score and do not know how you can take advantage of gaining more knowledge about financial management.
