This workshop examined the emerging impact of credit overlays and related underwriting policies that unfairly limit access to credit in low- to moderate-income consumers, African-American and Latino consumers and to communities of color. Topics discussed included successful models for identifying and challenging emerging redlining practices, unreasonable underwriting practices, and the use of testing.
