Pedcor for the People|
In acknowledgement of the devastating history of redlining in the banking industry, in 2017 our affiliate, United Fidelity Bank, created a “greenlining” program which we call the “New Hope” program.
New Hope provides below market interest rate mortgage loans to individuals and families in low to moderate income communities and/or those with low to moderate incomes — just one way we are working to generate more equitable financing options for future homeowners and promote investment in low- and moderate-income communities.
Like most investors, we don’t like surprises. Pedcor does a great job communicating with us to make sure that we don’t have any.– John Lisella, U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation
