Bank of America has demonstrated its unwavering commitment to supporting communities by granting $25,000 to Homes Bring Hope, an initiative under the Food Brings Hope Community. The generous grant is aimed at bolstering efforts to build homes for low and moderate-income families in East Central Florida.
The impact of this grant is set to be significant, as Homes Bring Hope intends to direct these funds toward the construction of additional housing for families in need. This endeavor aligns perfectly with the organization’s mission to provide affordable homes to those who require them most.
Terril Bates, Interim Executive Director of FBHC, emphasized the pivotal role of Bank of America’s grant in reducing the cost of homes for new owners. She highlighted that the grant would specifically cover the appliance costs, making homeownership more attainable for low and moderate-income families.
