One of the main goals of the nonprofit organization, Northwest Indiana Reinvestment Alliance is to strengthen credit building opportunities for Lake County residents. The Alliance also works to improve financial literacy and offer small business and entrepreneurial education. However, the Alliance cannot run all of its services and programs on its own. Many financial institutions across Northwest Indiana have offered their sponsorship to the Alliance and have helped to make financial literacy and independence possible for many NWI residents. Some of these sponsors are:


-Lake County Community Economic Development Department


-First Midwest Bank


-BMO Harris Bank


-Peoples Bank


-First Merchants Bank


-PNC Bank


-J.P. Morgan Chase Bank


-Centier Bank


-Fifth Third Bank


-First Savings Bank of Hegewisch


-Standard Bank and Trust


-TCF Bank
