Funding for Life Goals

We help Oregonians become homeowners, college graduates and business owners through financial education and Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) that provide matching funds for savers.

Real Estate Development

As an affordable housing developer, we partner with trusted local organizations to construct and renovate affordable housing, and create community services such as health and childcare centers.

Community Loan Fund

We are certified by the U.S. Treasury Department as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). We secure funding for predevelopment of affordable housing, as well as construction and permanent financing.

Manufactured Housing Cooperative Development

We help people purchase their manufactured home communities by securing the necessary financing, and provide technical assistance to help them form resident-owned cooperatives.
