Mission Statement

Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) is a coalition of leaders working for economic justice and equitable resources to revitalize the Pittsburgh region. PCRG utilizes its strengths of engagement, advocacy, and policy formulation to focus its efforts on ensuring equitable access to land, capital, and mobility choices to improve the health and wealth of communities.

Description

Who We Are

PCRG is a membership organization for Community Development Corporations (CDCs), Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), and related nonprofits that represent low- and moderate- income communities throughout Allegheny County.

What We Do

PCRG brings community groups, financial institutions, nonprofits, and government agencies together to collaborate in the revitalization of Allegheny County. In 1988, PCRG organized as a coalition of community-based organizations to provide a coordinated response to the bank practice of "redlining"-the refusal of conventional mortgage credit in low-income communities-and in 1990, PCRG incorporated as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit. Since then, the financial services markets have evolved, and so has PCRG.

PCRG’s work has adapted to the changing landscape of community development and has grown to meet the needs of its members and communities:
