Small Businesses Receive Grant Funding From Union Bank Foundation
Small Business Technical Assistance Grants help existing small businesses in low- to moderate-income communities who provide technical services. The grant money helps them grow their businesses and revenues and increase jobs in the area. The grants also help businesses gain greater credit opportunities and benefit the community through economic growth.
Home ownership Counseling Grants are offered to small non-profit businesses who provide financial education and home ownership counseling for first-time home buyers. These businesses provide a valuable service for families and individuals by making them more knowledgeable about the home buying and ownership process, loan modification and how to prevent foreclosure.
Union Bank is a full-service commercial bank serving individuals, small businesses, middle-market companies, and major corporations. Although Union Bank originated in California, it now has 447 branches in California, Washington, Oregon, Texas, Illinois, and New York and also has offices in Japan. The foundation grants are in alignment with the organization's goal to support affordable housing, community economic development, education, and the environment.
