The Habitat for Humanity-Bremer Bank Home Loan Impact Fund is the largest banking partnership of any Habitat affiliate nationwide. Through this partnership, Habitat originates mortgages for low- and moderate-income households, and sells the below-market mortgages to Bremer. Since the program launch in 2017, nearly 500 families have achieved affordable homeownership. In 2022, Bremer renewed the partnership, committing an additional $125 million over the next three years to help address the Twin Cities’ substantial homeownership gap.
The ongoing success of this program has earned Bremer Bank a 2022 Community Commitment Award from the ABA Foundation. This award recognizes and promotes the many valuable ways banks of all sizes contribute to economic growth, community development and enhancing the quality of life in their communities—and is a true badge of honor for any bank to earn.
