United Way receives grant from First National Bank

First National Bank of Omaha will award more than $3 million in community development grants and impact investments to 27 organizations in six states, providing relief to individuals and businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

FNBO’s community investment strategy focuses on affordable housing, workforce and small business development; the bank’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is in line with that strategy by focusing on housing, workforce and small business stability to get through this crisis.

The first round of grants supports organizations providing housing stability programs. These grants are being awarded to nonprofit organizations that are helping families remain stable and healthy in their homes by providing financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities and other needs, such as food and living expenses. Locally, Kiswaukee United Way of DeKalb received a grant of $10,000.

Another round of grants, to be awarded later this spring, will focus on workforce stability. For more information, visit www.fnbo.com/community/
