Bank of America Economic Mobility focused on needs of individuals and families (workforce development & education and basic needs), February 16, 2024

Within under-resourced communities, generations of lack of access to care and health resources have contributed to poorer health outcomes.

Jobs: Employment is a key driver of economic mobility. That’s why we’re focused on building pathways to employment by supporting a range of workforce development opportunities, including education, upskilling and reskilling programs that will help individuals and families stabilize and advance. Applications accepted 1/22/2024 – 2/16/2024.

Bank of America Economic Mobility focused on needs of community (affordable housing, small business, neighborhood revitalization), Applications accepted:  5/27/2024 – 6/21/2024

Affordable Housing: The current environment has underscored the importance of safe, decent housing for an individual’s overall well-being, including health, educational success and future employment opportunities. Yet for many, access to affordable housing has become further out of reach while others struggle with the possibility of eviction, foreclosure and homelessness. That’s why we support the efforts of organizations working to preserve and increase access to a mix of affordable housing options as well as other essential assistance.

Neighborhood Revitalization: Vibrant communities are places where individuals can thrive and succeed and have the opportunity to live and work with safe, decent housing, transportation to jobs, strong business corridors and thriving arts and culture districts. We support local and regional revitalization efforts, taking a holistic approach to building inclusive communities, creating economic opportunity and livable neighborhoods.
