MAHA is calling on Citibank to join the SoftSecond Program! We have mobilized thousands of Massachusetts residents to write, call, e-mail, and visit bank executives. Our volunteers have handed out yellow flyers in front of Citi branches throughout Greater Boston, alerting customers and passersby to the poor service Citi offers low and moderate income homebuyers and neighborhoods.
Did you know the bank has 31 branches in Greater Boston, including 9 in Boston - but none in Dorchester, Roxbury, Roslindale, Hyde Park, or Mattapan? And we've alerted federal bank regulators to Citi's dismally low percentage of mortgages made to low and moderate income homebuyers in Massachusetts (14.3% for Citi vs. over 40% for Bank of America, Sovereign, and Citizens).
MAHA members are asking Citi to commit in writing to join the program. We have requested a letter to MAHA that includes the number of homebuyers the bank will serve each year from 2012-2014.
