Shows that community development (CD) banks far outperform regular
banks in serving low-income and minority communities. Includes
extensive data analysis which describes the performance of banks in
Chicago. Demonstrates that a considerably higher percent of CD banks’
home loans go to lower-income neighborhoods and borrowers than is true
for all other lenders. The same pattern is repeated for loans to
minority neighborhoods and borrowers.
