Since 1987, we’ve invested over $760 million in loans and investments to leverage over $2.5 billion and connect more than 120,000 people in underserved New Jersey communities and neighborhoods to capital and resources needed to grow and thrive.

As community builders, we strive to allocate capital, resources and strategies in ways that benefit the underserved and build healthy communities. We have consistently analyzed the social and economic impact of our lending activities by monitoring and measuring the ways we are creating healthier, more inclusive and equitable neighborhoods.
