We believe in doing the right thing.
We started out as small business more than a century ago, and we want to help others get their start. As a tax credit partner through the Pennsylvania Neighborhood Partnership Program, Huntington has committed funding and technical support to the Northside Community Development Fund (NSCDF) since 2007.
The organization provides affordable financing and technical assistance to encourage business expansion, housing development and job creation on the north side of Pittsburgh. Additionally, NSCDF helps with the development of women and minority-owned businesses.
Overall, NSCDF has provided financial support to more than 150 small businesses, including micro financing and equity investments.
Thanks in part to our efforts, ground was broken last October for Lighthouse Haven, a $1.8 million dollar center in downtown Steubenville. The facility will serve the homeless who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse and physical disabilities.
Huntington was the sponsoring bank for grant funding from the Federal Home Loan Bank’s Affordable Housing Program. The center will include ten supportive-living apartments for individuals and families. Jefferson Behavioral Health Systems will provide programs and services for residents.
