Martin O'Malley's policies onJobs & Economy

Support local financial institutions

Credit unions, community banks, and community development financial institutions are crucial sources of investment in low-income communities. They encourage saving and promote asset building for low-income families, while providing mortgages and small business loans in areas that are not typically well served by big banks. O’Malley will support and strengthen these institutions, while taking steps to expand financial services to the 17 million unbanked Americans—like allowing the Postal Service to offer bill payments, prepaid cards, and small-dollar loans.
