Throughout the month of June and in celebration of Homeownership Month, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director for North Dakota Erin Oban recognized Bravera as one of the top three North Dakota lending partners working with USDA Rural Development to support rural homeownership thus far in fiscal year 2022. Bravera has helped rural individuals and families buy homes through USDA Rural Development’s Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program.
The agency presented the award to Bravera Bank and their mortgage team. “Affordability and accessibility of housing is an enormous challenge in many North Dakota communities, but in partnership with USDA Rural Development, these lenders are leading their industry in assisting our state’s most rural residents to find places they can call home,” said Oban. “We are grateful for lenders like Bravera Bank that commit to utilizing federal resources available that reduce barriers, like eliminating the need for a down payment, to own a home. USDA Rural Development is strengthening communities, providing stability for families, and building generational wealth by helping North Dakotans become homeowners.”
