About Hoosiers for Responsible Lending
Hoosiers for Responsible Lending (HRL) was created by a network of policy advocates working to empower Hoosiers regarding responsible lending and informed borrowing. The HRL Coalition fights to put an end to loans and policies that target and trap vulnerable Hoosiers—extracting wealth from them and their communities. HRL supports improved access to credit and strong consumer protection guardrails around alternative financial services that require transparency and limit what lenders can charge.
HRL promotes responsible lending through advocacy, education, and transparency. It is co-governed by Prosperity Indiana and the Indiana Community Action Poverty Institute and has a Steering Committee of diverse organizations that work to create a fair, transparent credit marketplace that benefits consumers, lenders, and the Hoosier economy. Members of the HRL Steering Committee are leaders in the Indiana consumer protections space.
