Looking Out for Our Communities
Huntington is investing in small businesses, with a special emphasis on those owned by minorities, women, and veterans. The bank’s $7.6 billion commitment to helping businesses will be bolstered by additional investments in business-planning and educational programs to help bring business owners the relief, recovery and growth they are seeking as the cornerstones of the American economy.
Huntington is expanding lending programs and educational services to support increased home ownership by minority and low- to moderate-income borrowers throughout the Midwest. The bank’s $7.5 billion commitment will enable greater opportunities for first-time home buyers, improve housing security for financially distressed consumers, and help create generational wealth building through home ownership. It will also enable home rehabilitation and the refinancing of existing homes to unlock the cash-flow needs of borrowers.
Huntington recognizes the barriers to banking that exist for some people and businesses, and we are investing $4.9 billion toward our communities’ efforts related to affordable housing, food security, workforce development, and social equity. Huntington believes these areas are fundamental to helping people not only find basic economic security, but also prosper. Huntington also knows that by making our communities stronger, it creates additional opportunities for those that live and work there.
