We’re an association of minority-owned banks working to eliminate the racial wealth gap.
Since our founding in 1927, NBA has served as a voice for minority-owned banks. Our members include Black, Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, and women-owned banks across the country, all working to help low and moderate-income communities who are underserved by traditional banks and financial service providers.
What We Do
We’re making the financial services industry inclusive by supporting minority banks and their customers. Because when minority banks thrive, so do their communities. Here’s how we do it.
Advocate for legislative and regulatory policies and practices that strengthen minority banks and their communities. Elevate the brand and reputation of our banks as they tell the story about how they positively impact the community.
Deliver resources to improve our members’ operational efficiency and effectiveness, regulatory excellence, and profitability.
Assist our banks in accumulating equity capital they use to scale and deliver more impact in their communities.
Provide a platform for our banks to collaborate with each other and allies to deliver more and better financial products and services to the communities they serve.
