ITIN Lending Online Learning

In 2019, Filene Research Institute partnered with Visa, Coopera, Inclusiv, and PolicyWorks to provide a series of in-person workshops across the United States on how to implement Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Lending. The aim of these workshops was to inspire financial institutions to implement ITIN Lending by providing actionable information and support. We have captured some of the key learnings from these workshops in this online learning site to help your financial institution implement or expand your ITIN lending offerings.
