With the goal of driving economic mobility and social progress, Bank of America is awarding grants totaling more than $2 million to 57 Maryland nonprofits, it announced Thursday.

Bank of America targeted programs that will help increase access to basic needs, workforce development and education among historically underserved individuals and families, as well as address needs related to affordable housing, small business and neighborhood revitalization.

“As our community continues to recover from the events of the past two years, the work of local nonprofits has proven essential in meeting the needs of our neighbors and residents,” Janet Currie, Bank of America Greater Maryland president, said in a news release. “Greater Maryland is home to an incredible network of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations that advance economic and social progress. Bank of America is committed to supporting these partnerships and serving the communities in which we live and work.”

This grant funding joins an expanded $1.25 billion, five-year commitment, announced in the spring, to help advance racial equality and economic opportunity in local communities. The commitment aims to support investments that address racial justice, advocacy and equality for people and communities of color.
