THANK YOU to the CRA officers of Oakland County and all the participants of the Fair Housing Workshop held at the Southfield Public Library on April 5, 2016. The County CRA Association is a consortium of financial institutions that have come together to support our work in Oakland County. This half-day program was designed especially for homebuyers or small businesses. It was a great success, all the presenters were good. Thank you Southfield for hosting.
