Oklahoma City’s Bank 2 Partners with First Interstate Bank

Share Article

Bank 2, a community bank headquartered in Oklahoma City, has partnered with First Interstate Bank of Montana, Wyoming, and western South Dakota to provide affordable housing loans to Native Americans.

Through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program provides home mortgages specifically designed for American Indian, Native Alaskan, and Native Hawaiian. First Interstate will be referring all HUD Section 184 prospects to Bank2 in an effort to provide their Native American customers with the best service possible. Johnnie McClusky, First Interstate’s Community Development Officer, said “This is all part of our commitment to the communities we serve, ensuring that we meet the needs of our customers.”

The purpose of the HUD Section 184 program is to provide Native Americans access to financing. The Section 184 loan can be used for purchase, refinance, rehabilitation, new construction and can even be used on Tribal Trust lands. Section 184 loans offer a low down payment, competitive interest rates, and monthly mortgage insurance is not required. The Section 184 program has guaranteed over 12,000 loans to individuals, tribes, and TDHEs, according to HUD.

Bank2 is a market leader in the HUD 184 home loan program for Native Americans. The HUD 184 program was designed to solve a number of barriers to home ownership. One difference about Bank2 and other HUD 184 lenders is that they offer the entirety of the program – they do loans on fee simple lands and tribal trust lands, as well as manufactured and modular homes. They lend directly to tribes and tribal housing authorities, and do single close construction and rehab loans. Bank2 uses their flexibility to solve a number of housing challenges.
