CDB deployed $3.62 billion in debt commitments and $2.25 billion in investments to help build strong, sustainable communities through affordable housing and economic development across the country.
“In the face of a very challenging year, Bank of America Community Development Banking continued to serve its clients, adapting to their changing needs throughout this health crisis,” said Maria Barry, Community Development Banking national executive at Bank of America. “We worked closely with our clients to proactively mitigate risk and identify opportunities. The strength of the bank and the steadiness of CDB gave them confidence that we would deliver for them.”
In 2020, CDB-financed developments produced more than 13,800 housing units, of which more than 13,000 were affordable, including:
- 6,000 green housing units.
- 2,400 housing units for seniors.
- 1,600 housing units for veterans, special needs and the formerly homeless.
This included 1,650 affordable housing units developed by Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises, using $506 million in debt and equity financed by CDB.
Bank of America Global Corporate and Investment Banking also provided $301 million in tax credit investments, for a total of $6.17 billion in affordable housing and economic development financing.
“Our business has consistently grown for five consecutive years, demonstrating our continued commitment to producing safe, affordable housing and supporting the communities in which we work and live,” continued Barry.
From 2005 to 2020, Community Development Banking has financed more than 250,000 housing units, of which more than 215,000 are affordable housing.
This commitment complements Bank of America’s $1 billion, four-year commitment to help advance racial equality and economic opportunity. The work focuses on closing the racial wealth gap in Black and Hispanic-Latino communities with a focus on affordable housing, health and healthcare, jobs/reskilling and small business.
CDB delivers innovative financing solutions to help create affordable housing for individuals, families, seniors, students, veterans, the formerly homeless, and those with special needs.
