DEVELOPMENT LOANS & INVESTMENTS

Our Bank’s community reinvestment is responsive to economic needs across our footprint. In 2016, we provided more than $1.1 billion in community development loans and investments for affordable housing and revitalization and stabilization initiatives in vulnerable neighborhoods. This financing supported the construction or rehabilitation of nearly 10,000 affordable housing units. Beyond the funding, we look for opportunities to link affordable housing with social services for vulnerable elders and those with special needs; support housing in communities that are pedestrian-friendly and accessible through public transit; and work with nonprofits that support energy-efficient and environmentally sound building features.
