EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Earlier this week, local nonprofit grant awardees were recognized by members of the El Paso Bank of America team.

Awardees were honored for their commitment to community development, workforce readiness, basic needs, and advancing racial equality and economic opportunity for individuals and families.

Bank of America officials share that the Coronavirus has had a “disproportionate impact on vulnerable populations who experienced increased unemployment and higher levels of infection.”

To mitigate these challenges, Bank of America partnered with organizations addressing the economic and social conditions that affect an individual’s health, access to community-based health services, crisis-prevention tied to family stabilization programs, and other poverty related issues.
