Housing is one of our most basic human needs. We make a positive impact through our lending practice — investing depositor dollars in endeavors that serve our communities. That includes financing the development, preservation, and renovation of affordable housing on the West Coast. Supporting deed-restricted affordable housing development and renewal is central to our mission.
California, Oregon, and Washington are all in the top 7 states with highest levels of unhoused individuals in the country, with California in the top position.1 We have lent hundreds of millions of dollars to affordable housing developers in all three states, supporting the development of over 8,400 units.2
We’re proud to be a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI)
As one of the nine CDFI banks on the West Coast, our impact is rooted in our commitment to shared prosperity. With our focus on lending to affordable housing, local businesses, and impactful nonprofits, Beneficial State Bank is creating positive impacts in low-to-moderate income (LMI) communities.
