Let’s build something together

Detroit is home to more than manufacturing; our streets are lined with award-winning restaurants, small businesses and a booming arts and culture district. The health crisis hit Detroit early and hard, particularly within the City itself, a low-to-moderate income area with a large minority population. Bank of America took action by moving quickly to address critical needs, starting with food insecurity. We funded an innovative program that utilized empty airline kitchens to produce meals for those in need—and also helped save jobs in the airline industry. We helped develop mobile COVID-19 testing units to overcome public transit challenges and reach our most vulnerable citizens. On the jobs front, we funded the startup of an organization that is the new front door for Detroit's burgeoning small business sector, and continued to fund Detroit’s entrepreneurship hub, empowering startups and local businesses to accelerate inclusive economic development. Lastly, we support a wonderful citywide summer jobs program that provides meaningful employment opportunities for Detroit youth. Workforce development will continue to be our focus in the upcoming months and years.

Closing the digital divide, opening new opportunities

For young people, the digital divide can be a daunting barrier to entry for careers in IT. That’s why NPower Michigan offers Tech Fundamentals, an education and job placement program for young people ages 18-25 and military veterans that provides the skills training and career pathways needed to enter and succeed in this growing field. A grant from Bank of America, part of the bank’s $1.25 billion, five-year commitment to advance racial equality and economic opportunity will help NPower Michigan continue to offer Tech Fundamentals and support the expansion of the program.

Advancing Racial Equality and Economic Opportunity

The need for real progress on racial and economic inequality in the United States has been accentuated by the impact of the coronavirus on communities of color, and amplified by acts of injustice. We all have a role to play in helping move communities forward – an understanding that forms the foundation of Bank of America’s long-standing commitment to the people and communities it serves. And they’re at the heart of the bank’s $1.25 billion commitment over the next five years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity.
