Reinvesting in the Community

CIT and OneWest Bank are dedicated to the Southern California community, including meeting the needs of low- and moderate-income neighborhoods and consumers as consistent with safe and sound banking practices. Our Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) plan was developed with input from our Community Advisory Board, which includes members of community-based organizations in Southern California. We met with more than 25 organizations, held open public meetings, and conducted a written survey of 49 different community organizations to develop a comprehensive plan.
