Public Welfare Investments Resource Directory

Both national banks and federal savings associations (FSAs) may make direct or indirect investments designed primarily to promote the public welfare.  For purposes of this Web page, investments that help to finance community development activities and provide capital for affordable housing, small business development and other community needs will be referred to as “public welfare investments investments or PWI.”  This Public Welfare Investments Resource Directory provides information that would assist both national banks and FSAs to engage in these activities.
