Bank On Greater Cincinnati is a program that has developed partnerships among financial institutions, community groups, and local government to connect our “unbanked” consumers with mainstream financial services, including checking, savings, credit and financial education. This is a collaborative effort lead by Mayor Mark Mallory and includes Mayor Jerry Peluso of Newport Kentucky and Mayor Denny Bowman, of Covington Kentucky, The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (Cincinnati Branch), and SmartMoney Community Services serving as the fiscal agent. Together we can significantly increase the access to quality and affordable financial services in the Greater Cincinnati region.
Why spend hundreds of dollars a year at a check-cashing company when you can deposit your money for free and pay your bill at no additional cost? Today, everybody can get a bank account. Even if you’ve had problems with an account in the past or have never had an account before, you can open a bank account with Bank On Greater Cincinnati.
