At U.S. Bancorp, developing communities means investing in people and their hopes and dreams for the future. By providing products and services that meet the diverse needs of our communities ? such as our innovative mortgage program for first-time homebuyers ? we?re helping to provide a social and economic foundation for achieving affordable housing, productive small businesses and culturally vibrant communities.
It?s a big goal, one we can?t meet alone. That?s why U.S. Bancorp works in partnership with hundreds of organizations across our 25-state banking region to help develop affordable housing, foster economic revitalization and provide training and education to small businesses, consumers and first-time homebuyers. It?s also why we?re committed to providing financial and leadership support to national and regional equity funds as well as actively investing in Low Income Affordable Housing Tax Credit projects to further support the creation of affordable housing units.
When our communities succeed, we all succeed. That?s what community development at U.S. Bancorp is all about and it?s integral to the way we do business.
