$6.3 million Grant Announced From JPMorgan Chase
February 18, 2020
Four years ago, in January 2014, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation announced a $6.3 million grant to help people gain access to safe and affordable housing. One third of the firm’s contributions will help minority residents in underserved communities with the rest dedicated to helping neighborhoods rebound through strategic community development. First time home buyers, with a focus on veterans, will be awarded money to assist in developing affordable housing and to prevent homelessness.
