Bremer Mortgage receives 2017 Champion of Affordable Housing Award


Bremer Bank received the 2017 Champion of Affordable Housing Award from the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA). In addition, Bremer Mortgage Loan Originator Renae Meisch was recognized both as a Top Producer of affordable housing loans and an overall Top Producer of NDHFA loans in 2017.

NDHFA's Champion of Affordable Housing Awards celebrate the work of individuals, nonprofit organizations, public agencies, private housing developers and other providers who have made exceptional contributions to affordable housing in North Dakota.

“We believe that housing is the foundation for stable families and healthy communities, said Meredith Winegar, mortgage president. “Helping to make the dream of homeownership a reality is in direct alignment with our vision: to strengthen communities and transform aspirations into realities. NDHFA loans provide Bremer Bank with another affordable housing option that allows us to get more people and families into their very first home.”

Lender awards are based on promotion of NDHFA’s homeownership programs and participation in locally sponsored affordable housing projects and events. The awards were presented at a special luncheon during the 2018 North Dakota State Housing Conference in Bismarck on April 26.
