The Impact of Community Banks

Community banks improve our towns and cities by funding businesses and using local dollar to help families purchase homes, finance education, and build financial security. Community banks have 51,000 locations nationwide, employ 700,000 people,  and are in nearly every Congressional district. The best way to preserve this positive impact is to advocate and tell elected officials about the significance of community banks.
