Making homeownership a reality

As his five-person family outgrew its Chicago apartment, Johnson Bam was looking to buy a home. He made that dream a reality by learning how to budget, save for a down payment and manage expenses through his local Better Money Habits® program.

Our Better Money Habits® resources and tools help people learn about everything from credit cards to taxes to saving for a home, college, retirement and more.

Smart & sustainable projects

Clean drinking water helps not only a community’s health, but its finances, too. In fact, every $1 invested in water saves $4.30 in health care costs.

Though the rewards of clean water investments can be far reaching, implementing these projects often present complex challenges that can take creative teamwork. That's why we often use blended finance to help private investors, governments and charities collaborate on sustainable projects in the developing world.

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.
