Citi Introduces ATM Community Network

Recently, Citi launched the Citi ATM Community Network – a pilot program that would allow 300,000 clients of minority-owned banks and credit unions to use Citi ATM’s to withdraw cash without incurring additional surcharge fees. Over 2,400 Citibank ATM’s throughout the country are already providing this service to clients, including Citi branches in large cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. According to Citi, the goal of the program is “to provide wide access to safe and affordable financial products and services, especially in low-income communities and communities of color.” Learn more about this program.
