New Yorkers for Responsible Lending (NYRL)
May 14, 2010
New Yorkers for Responsible Lending (NYRL) is a statewide coalition that promotes access to fair and affordable financial services and the preservation of assets for all New Yorkers and their communities. NYRL is committed to fighting predatory practices in the financial services industry through policy reform, education and outreach, research and direct services. NYRL’s 147 members represent community financial institutions, community-based organizations, affordable housing and first-time homebuyer groups, advocates for seniors, legal services organizations, and community reinvestment, fair lending, and consumer advocacy groups.
NRYL is convened by the Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP), a non-profit located in New York City, and is run by a steering committee open to all members. NYRL includes four working groups focused on mortgage issues, consumer finance, insurance and federal advocacy. Membership is open to all community and advocacy organizations in New York State. NYRL is the forum for folks to share financial justice concerns seen at the local level and to organize and inform each other through a statewide platform. For more information about NYRL, including a list of members, recent activities and instructions on how to join, go to NYRL’s homepage at NEDAP’s website, http://www.nedap.org/programs/nyrl.html.
