Our community loan services help support affordable housing development, community facilities, commercial revitalization to strengthen low-income communities. These home and community loans can go up to $1M in an effort to restore and support low-income areas of South Carolina.

Due to the lack of affordable financing for community developers, there is a deficit of affordable housing options for low-wealth families.
