  • Entry Category: Community and Economic Development

With the Bank's recent entry into the Lebanon market, it was recognized that services and help were needed in the Lebanon City area. Several projects were initiated to assist in the community and help address the needs identified. These projects included providing Homeowner Education workshops to the Hispanic Community, partnering with the Lebanon City School District tp provide backpacks and other materials to displaced and new students resulting from the influx of Hispanic students from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and creating a new loan product geared towards First Time Home Buyers to increase their lilelihood of achieving homeownership. These initiatives, along with partnering with Non-Profit organizations in the area, have resulted in positive feedback and response from the Hispanic community in Lebanon.
