Community Impact

Impacting the Community Through Finance

At City First Bank, we are focused on building the economic health of underserved communities in the greater regions of Washington, DC and Los Angeles, CA. Commercial lending for the development or preservation of affordable housing, the construction or renovation of community facilities and loans for the business operations of small for-profit and nonprofit companies remains the center of the City First Bank mission.   

We create significant impact even beyond our direct lending. Our New Markets Tax Credit program has also served as a significant catalyst for economic development through large scale and impactful projects.
