What are the key areas in which you plan to focus in the near future?
I hope to focus on a few areas in the future, one of which is the community bank.
This was a priority of my predecessor, and I am now committed to building on that legacy.
In the coming years, we will be building on the success of the Community Bank and its sister institution, the First Community Bank of Santa Barbara.
The First Community is a bank that provides loans to low-income individuals and families in San Bernardino County, California.
It was created to provide funding for the community by offering low-interest loans to the needy and elderly, as well as other projects that support the needs of the community.
One of the initiatives of the First is the expansion of the Santa Barbara Community Housing Trust.
It will provide $500 million for housing and community development for low- and moderate-income families, as part of the $4.8 billion in Community Development Block Grants announced in October.
As part of this effort, the bank has agreed to invest in affordable housing, which will enable more families to access the services they need to thrive in our community.
The bank will also partner with community groups, churches, and other organizations to develop programs to increase employment opportunities, improve public education, and foster economic growth.
Our commitment to community and to our communities will continue to be a cornerstone of our work.
Our community bank will be the first in the country to provide financial services to low and moderate income families, with the goal of making this a permanent program.
The Community Bank will operate as a partnership between the bank and the Santa Cruz County Housing Authority (HCA).
In addition to the Community Trust, the Santa Clara County Housing Board has also announced that it will support the bank.
The first Community Bank in the United States, the Community Banking Corporation (CC) is a community bank that will provide loans to local communities, including housing, food, and shelter, as long as those borrowers are low- to moderate- income and have a home in the area.
The CC is designed to complement existing banking programs, including the Neighborhood Credit Union, the California Community Credit Union (CCU), and the Southern California Community Bank.
The two branches will work closely with each other to serve their respective communities.
We are also developing partnerships with other organizations in the community, including nonprofit housing providers, churches and charities, and private lenders.
In addition, we are working to expand our reach to other locales in the state, as we are currently focused on funding programs for homeless veterans and veterans’ families in Southern California.
The Santa Clara Valley Economic Development Corporation (SDEDC) is partnering with the First and the Community Banks to create a pilot program in the Santa Maria, California, area.
This pilot program will be funded through the Community Investment Corporation (CIC), an entity created to expand the economic opportunities and economic stability of the communities we serve.
Our primary focus will be to create jobs, and we will utilize local technology to provide job training, employment opportunities and employment and job retraining programs for the unemployed.
This will include training for new hires, and job-training programs that will help people who are unemployed find employment through a community-based employment agency.
This initiative will begin in the first quarter of 2019, and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
Our goal is to provide over $2 billion in financial assistance to eligible households through the First Bank.
This investment will also help support the development of more community credit unions.
SDEDC has invested more than $1 billion in the First Banks credit unions, which are local organizations that provide financial assistance for the poorest in our communities, as a means to improve the quality of life for people who rely on these institutions for their access to credit.
The SDEDCs new financial assistance program is designed in partnership with First Bank and Community Bank, and will expand the financial assistance available to low to moderate income borrowers.
We believe this program will help ensure that our communities continue to thrive, and provide additional opportunities for families to be able to access credit.
In 2018, the first Community Banking of Santa Maria began serving Santa Maria residents with access to affordable mortgages and financial services.
The community bank was founded to provide loans for the low- income, homeless, and families with children.
The credit unions focus is on providing a safe, affordable, and secure way for families, seniors, and individuals to obtain credit.
With the help of a small staff of dedicated people, we have worked closely with the Santa Rita Community Credit Bank to create an innovative financial assistance and job training program.
Through our partnership with the community credit union, we hope to provide an alternative for families and individuals who may be struggling financially to access an affordable loan, access to a credit union that will work with them to create and support employment opportunities in the local community, and a loan program that will offer borrowers a safe and secure path to access a loan.
