Only 39 percent of African Americans in California live in a home that they own, compared to nearly 50 percent for African Americans in the rest of the nation. This report finds that the seven major lenders studied originated only 48 home loans to very low income African Americans in California.
This report provides a wide range of comparisons among the seven major institutions in terms of number of conventional home loans made to African Americans by income and by overall percentage of loans made. Greenlining created an overall score that incorporated the rankings of number and percentage of loans made to African Americans of all incomes and low income African Americans in California.
