This article is more than 1 year old.

The Trump administration has made it a priority to roll back government regulations, on everything from the environment to the internet. One of the laws now targeted for overhaul is the Community Reinvestment Act, or CRA, a set of regulations that pushes banks to invest in low-income communities. The CRA has been law for 40 years now.

KQED's Brian Watt (@RadioBWatt) visited Fruitvale Village, a neighborhood in Oakland, California, to try to measure how the CRA has worked there.
