BRIDGE partners with Esusu, a BIPOC-owned financial technology company, to bring residents a wide array of financial programs designed to help them establish and improve their credit rating. Esusu helps some residents establish credit visibility for the first time and helps others improve their overall credit ratings and scores by reporting on-time rent payments to the three credit bureaus. By doing so, many residents are able to build a financial foundation to eventually have the choice to move into market-rate apartment homes or achieve home ownership. The free program is implemented across 100+ BRIDGE-managed communities throughout CA, with over 10,000 households having their positive rent payments reported.
