How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Connecticut

We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.

Through this effort, our team in Connecticut recently presented Connecticut Foodshare with a check for $185,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Joe Gianni, President of Bank of America Hartford, about our role in keeping Hartford moving forward.

Let’s build something together

While the pandemic has affected everyone—in Greater Hartford and across the country—some members of our community have been hit particularly hard. We want to do our part to help. Bank of America has long believed that investing in our communities and partnering with local organizations is the best way to make Greater Hartford fairer, safer and more prosperous. We're not talkers; we’re doers. We’re supporting programs that address the healthcare disparities faced by our Black and Hispanic neighbors. We’ve expanded our existing partnerships with organizations that provide food and shelter, critical services to the homeless and care for survivors of intimate partner violence. We’re working to help keep small businesses open, prepare them to emerge from the crisis stronger than before, and ensure Greater Hartford’s workforce has the skills and opportunities to be successful.

Thinking ahead on job readiness

Dedicated to preparing students for successful careers in manufacturing to meet the state’s demand for skilled workers, Goodwin University has partnered with the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technologies and Connecticut State Colleges and Universities to launch the Connecticut Manufacturing Workforce Development Initiative. Supported by funding from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the initiative will provide 1,600 existing workers with education, training and apprenticeships over the next four years, helping them advance from entry level jobs, forge a better career path, and earn higher incomes.

Why affordable housing is more crucial than ever

With millions of Americans struggling with high housing costs, or, worse, finding themselves at risk of losing their homes altogether, local nonprofits are working hard to provide housing in their communities. Hartford Interval House, Connecticut’s largest agency dedicated to ending domestic violence, has seen a record high demand for the free services it offers, from counseling to emergency shelter. But no one has been turned away.
