Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) recently received a contribution of $25,000 from Citizens Bank as part of the banks Citizens Helping Citizens program. Citizens Helping Citizens is focused on supporting and strengthening communities in the hopes of driving economic vitality in the region. PCRG will use the contribution for Moving Residents through Financial Education, an effort to provide residents with financial literacy education and financial tools. The overall goal of the program is to stabilize and revitalize distressed and transitional neighborhoods of low-to-moderate income (LMI) residents by making them homeowners. Building capacity within the community through training is integral to the long-term viability of neighborhood stabilization efforts.
