Wells Fargo Sets Aside More Than $1M in Community Development Funds

Wells Fargo announced today 48 grants totaling more than $1 million to community development organizations and programs in Atlanta. The funding is dedicated to work focusing on affordable housing, adult financial education and workforce development for low-to-moderate income wage-earners and communities.

Among the grant recipients are the Georgia Micro Enterprise Network and the Urban League of Greater Atlanta.

Grant applications were accepted from Dec. 1, 2016 through Feb. 1, 2017.

Wells Fargo’s Atlanta region changed its giving process last year in order to strategically review applications one focus area at a time: Community Development, K-12 Education and Human Services and Civic Engagement.

Applications are currently being accepted for programs that help to eliminate the achievement gap in K-12 public education, advance education through arts, culture, science and history programs or that preserve the environment through educational programs. The deadline is April 1.
