Community Development Lending
Our Community Lending efforts assist for profit and not for profit developers of multifamily affordable housing. Through competitively priced products such as our construction to permanent loan product and letter of credit enhancement products, Community Lending helps to ensure that developers have a vehicle to produce affordable rental housing with sustained long term affordability in and throughout the neighborhoods and communities where we do business.
Employee Volunteer Program - Bank Employees for a Stronger Tomorrow (B.E.S.T.)
The B.E.S.T employee volunteer program was created to encourage employees to participate in philanthropic opportunities for the benefit of making our community a better place to live, work and learn. Employees have given their time, talent, and resources to various not for profit organizations by providing financial education and mentoring, participating in walks, food drives and blood drives, and being involved in other community service activities.
