SELF is honored to collaborate with the City of St. Petersburg to provide sustainable community lending programs to help address environmental, economic, and social challenges in the city.
SELF prioritized the St. Pete region due to progressive local leadership on climate change, resilience and financial inclusion; robust partnerships; local demand for sustainable building practices; and, multiple solar co-op projects offered through FL SUN.
SELF’s lending requirements are much less stringent than traditional banks and we focus on the ability of the applicant to pay rather than credit scores. SELF also provides contractor screening, project management, and offers special lending programs for veterans, women, seniors, and persons with disabilities.
SELF is an equal opportunity lender that focuses on helping low- and moderate-income people.
