The CRA (Community Reinvestment Act)/Community Development Department of Nevada State Bank is committed to promoting and improving our Nevada community. This key commitment is exemplified through our community partnerships, our focus on affordable housing for low-to-moderate income individuals, our charitable contribution programs, our employee volunteerism, our advocacy of financial education, and our loan and grant programs targeted to improve the quality of the lives of Nevada residents.
Affordable Housing efforts are highlighted by our participation with the Federal Home Loan Bank's IDEA (Individual Development and Empowerment Account) and WISH (Workforce Initiative Subsidy for Homeownership) which provides matching subsidies to low-to-moderate income first time homebuyers. Nevada State Bank has also established the HOPE program, which provides down payment assistance up to $5,000.00 to assist qualified employees.
Community Development and SBA Loans provide the bank's clients with access to important financial services, including loans that support economic development and job creation.
Employees of Nevada State Bank make a difference by helping to further community development goals in markets served by Nevada State Bank. Ten percent of our team members volunteer, serving more than 140 organizations throughout the state.
