CCRC is one of the largest, most trusted CDFIs and permanent lenders
in the state of California.
In the past 34 years since CCRC was founded, we have funded over 700 communities and 46,000 units for low-income families, seniors and special needs individuals across the state of California.
BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE
CCRC launched its Bridging the Digital Divide Program in 2021. The initial grants were awarded to Mercy Housing, Abode Communities, and LifeSTEPS for programs designed to create and improve connectivity during this period of isolation that could only be bridged with enhanced technology and targeted programs, such as supporting remote learning, providing telehealth access, addressing food scarcity, enhancing socialization, and offering employment related services.
During 2022, CCRC awarded three grants totaling $100,000 under this initiative. Awardees were Hope Through Housing, The Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara, and Community Corporation of Santa Monica. The awards were, in part, funded by a $75,000 grant from Union Bank.
THE MARY KAISER
CCRC's scholarship fund was formed in 2008 and, over the past 15 years, has awarded $514,000 to 408 deserving students throughout California. In 2023, 29 students received scholarship money totaling $70,000. In 2022, CCRC's board of directors renamed the scholarship fund the Mary Kaiser Education Scholarship.
