As our partner stories below indicate, high-impact loans to community-minded organizations have a profound impact in the areas we serve.


Community Development Partners (CDP) constructs and manages affordable housing in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon. Pacific Premier actively participates with CDP in securing loans from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco’s Affordable Housing Program (AHP). As just one example of this partnership in 2021, CDP used a $560,000 AHP loan to develop a 57-unit project for chronically homeless individuals in Santa Ana, California.

Pacific Premier also originated several lines of credit, including one to finance pre-development project expenses for affordable housing construction projects in Orange County.

“My father started this business, and all my siblings actively participate in it today. He liked working with a local bank that understood the importance local businesses can have on their communities and that's why we continue working with Pacific Premier today.”
