HomeStreet Bank gets ‘outstanding’ ranking

The federal Community Reinvestment Act recently gave HomeStreet Bank an “outstanding” ranking for meeting the credit needs of its communities.

The bank is based in Seattle and has a branch in Newcastle.

In attaining its high ranking, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation evaluated the bank’s lending, service and investment practices, according to a news release. The FDIC also recognized the bank for its practices of lending to home buyers with low and moderate incomes.

“HomeStreet Bank puts great emphasis on its role as a community partner,” said Kathryn Williams, HomeStreet Bank community relations director and Community Reinvestment Act officer. “While the CRA evaluation is only one way of measuring the benefit we provide to our communities, it is rewarding to have our efforts recognized in this way.”
