March 2, 2017 - Bremer Bank is excited to announce a historical partnership with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity: Bremer will be the primary partner for the organization’s new Home Loan Impact Fund. The agreement includes a commitment to purchase up to 500 below-market Habitat mortgages over the next four years, more than doubling the number of local families that can attain affordable homeownership through Twin Cities Habitat.
“The opportunity to partner with Twin Cities Habitat to make such a meaningful investment in our community is exciting for all of us at Bremer,” said Jeanne Crain, Bremer Financial Corporation president and CEO. “Being a part of making the dream of homeownership a reality for 500 Twin Cities families is in direct alignment with our vision: to strengthen communities and transform aspirations into realities.”
“This partnership with Bremer is probably the largest banking partnership a Habitat affiliate has ever had anywhere in the country,” says Sue Haigh, president and CEO of Twin Cities Habitat.
