Mastercard and Citi expand partnership for financial inclusion

Friday 8 October 2021 10:06 CET | News

Mastercard has announced a new partnership with Citi to support local residents and small businesses through public-private sector collaboration.

Through City Possible, Mastercard’s partnership and co-creation framework for cities, the two companies will bring their collective resources, expertise, and integrated urban development frameworks to the City Possible network.

The partnership will initially grant City Possible network members access to ‘Citi Start Saving’ and ‘City Builder by Citi’ through the Mastercard City Insights Digital Marketplace. The Citi Start Saving program allows US municipal and non-profit organisations to expand access to financial services and advance economic progress in underserved and low-income communities.

City Builder by Citi is a free, data-driven platform that aggregates information about community investment opportunities and includes information on 16,000+ US cities, 73,000 census tracts, 485 community development projects, and 180 funds and community development entities. The new tools will provide City Possible members the ability to assess the impact of a climate or economic event to support policy and program development.

The partnership will also explore ways to help city leaders develop more efficient procurement processes as well as identify avenues to support an inclusive recovery through joint disbursement solutions.
