Over 40 million people live in California – 10 million in Los Angeles county alone. The state also has many rural areas with their own housing challenges and lack of infrastructure. This mix of urban and rural, as well as the sheer size of the state, requires unique innovations to address its affordability crisis. In this podcast, Steve and Corey talk with Mary Kaiser, the President of California Community Reinvestment Corporation, about community development and lending in the state of California.
