The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will host a webinar with the goals of reducing the use of high-cost consumer debt, rebuilding credit scores, and improving household financial stability of low-income Oregonians. A survey conducted in 2018 revealed that low-income Oregonians were carrying a variety of consumer debt, which was leading to debt collection and negative credit reporting. This debt is causing lasting implications on their household financial wellbeing. These outcomes have been exacerbated by the pandemic leading to further hardship in low-income communities, particularly communities of color. This webinar is designed to build alliances between banks and community-based organizations to create ways to decrease incidents of debt collection and negative credit reporting.
