Chenoa Fund helps more than 42,000 families become homeowners

May 15, 2023 – CEDAR CITY, Utah – CBC Mortgage Agency (CBCMA), a Native American wholly owned and federally chartered housing finance agency, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by unveiling a dynamic new rebrand for the correspondent investor and its Chenoa Fund Program, which has extended down payment assistance (DPA) to more than 42,000 families.

The Chenoa Fund Program was launched in May 2013 to help families achieve home ownership. Today, it operates in 49 states and territories. Roughly three-quarters of the homebuyers who receive DPA from CBC Mortgage Agency are first-time homebuyers, while around half are minorities.

In addition to the rebrand unveiling, CBC Mortgage Agency announced several significant hires and promotions, with women now accounting for 70% of the management team. The recent executive additions are listed below.


  • Pam Cooper CPA CMB, Chief Financial Officer
  • Alicia Wood, Loan Servicing Director
  • Cari Zwick, (promoted to) National Program Director
  • Kira Gissell, (promoted to) Communications, and PR Director
  • Dianah Hart, Director of Investor Relations and Fulfillment
  • Latrese Flowers, Program Management and Compliance Officer


“Our refreshed brand reflects the evolving and inclusive nature of CBC Mortgage Agency, while the design reflects our commitment to breaking down barriers to homeownership,” Adams stated. “As we continue to carry out our mission, I’m looking forward to unveiling some exciting changes and improvements later this year.”
