Center for Responsible Lending

"Protecting home ownership and family wealth"

"The Center for Responsible Lending is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that works to protect homeownership and family wealth by fighting predatory lending practices. Our focus is on consumer lending: primarily mortgages, payday loans, credit cards, bank overdrafts and auto loans.

Since we began in 2002, we have witnessed, studied, and fought against outrageous lending abuses that strip billions of dollars from American families."

The site includes useful tools for evaluating and comparing checking accounts and credit cards, with a list of questions - not all of them obvious - to ask and information on what the answers signify; tools for policy makers and for consumers; breaking news about trends in problematic lending; and how to avoid high-cost and predatory loans. CRL is the 2012 Winner: MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
