The Bank of America Charitable Foundation recently awarded Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati (HFHGC) a $45,000 grant as part of its broader initiative to support Ohio’s long-term sustainability by advancing economic mobility and social progress by focusing on the needs of the community.
HFHGC will use the funding to continue to create affordable homeownership opportunities in Greater Cincinnati.
“We partner with Bank of America build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter said Joe Hansbauer, President and CEO of HFHGC, “This support from Bank of America allows first time homebuyers to partner with Habitat to build and buy a home that is affordable.”
The grant is part of the nearly $700,00 in grants that Bank of America has provided to local nonprofits this year. HFHGC was part of Bank of America’s second round of grants in 2022. This round was focusing on economic mobility and social progress through investments in affordable housing, community revitalization, the arts and the environment. These grants are part of the Bank’s commitment to responsible growth as it works to improve the financial lives of individuals and families. Philanthropic and volunteer investments play a key role in this effort to build thriving communities.
“Addressing community needs through our philanthropic investments is just one way we deploy capital to help build a more sustainable community,” said Mark Ryan, President Bank of America Cincinnati. “We’re honored to partner with nonprofit organizations like Habitat Greater Cincinnati across the Ohio Valley that are helping to advance economic and social progress, in particular for vulnerable populations.”
