09/16/2021 | 05:52pm EDT

Baton Rouge, La. - b1BANK is pleased to announce its partnership with Project REACh, an interagency initiative led by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). REACh, or Roundtable for Economic Access and Change, brings together community leaders to reduce specific barriers to full, equal and fair participation in the nation's economy.This collaboration is part of the bank's ongoing Community Development and Economic and Sustainability Initiative (ESI) which seeks collaborative opportunities that can result in meeting the needs of the underserved in the bank's communities.

'b1BANK embraces the need for greater financial inclusion, which is why we are striving to develop deeper relationships with community banks that serve low-and-moderate income census tracts,' said Jesse Jackson, executive vice president and president of the b1BANK Financial Institutions Group. 'When it comes to financial inclusion, b1BANK understands the material business benefits and social impact of pledging support to Project Reach.'

b1BANK's intention is to help minority depository institutions (MDIs) remain a vibrant part of the economic landscape and better promote fair, equal, and full access to financial products and services in their communities. As a Project REACh partner, b1BANK will work with individual MDIs to identify investment opportunities that will benefit the MDI. The bank will also assist the MDI in implementing new and relevant products and services, innovative technology initiatives, seek out opportunities to expand the MDI's reach, and connect the MDI to community leaders and organizations for business and growth opportunities.
