NEDAP makes its publications available exclusively to advocates, community groups, grassroots organizations, and non-profits. Some are available online. Others can be ordered by calling us at (212) 680-5100, or sending us an email.
NEDAP has created fact sheets and guides on a broad range of issues, including fair lending, basic banking, refund anticipation lending, and immigrants' banking rights. New fact sheets and resources are added on a regular basis.
NEDAP and our coalition partners regularly file comments and submit testimony on proposed mergers and regulatory actions. All comment letters and testimony since 2002 are available online.
NEDAP has produced reports on banking conditions in NYC neighborhoods; subprime mortgages and foreclosures; efforts to promote financial justice for immigrant New Yorkers; abusive tax refund anticipation loans (a.ka. "rapid refunds") and other issues.
NEDAP created a comprehensive Community Financial Literacy and Justice Curriculum, which addresses practical financial skills, individual economic rights, and broader economic justice issues. The curriculum has been used by groups around the country to educate their members and launch organizing campaigns around financial justice issues.
NEDAP prepares color, GIS maps to support economic justice organizing, education and policy reform efforts in New York. NEDAP has mapped, for example, the distribution of banks, check cashers and pawn shops, as well as foreclosures, mortgage loans and tax refund anticipation loans in NYC. Maps have been used by groups to expose discriminatory lending patterns, press for increased lending and investment by mainstream banks, and support fair housing litigation.
