Helping communities thrive
When residents are committed to investing and maintaining their homes and neighborhoods, our communities thrive.
Dollar Bank works with many local churches, businesses, nonprofits and community organizations to do our part. We are active in the following counties/cities: Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach.
The free programs detailed below are available to our community partners.
Free educational programs for individuals
The Homeownership Program at Dollar Bank was developed to assist low and moderate income individuals and families who would like to become first-time homebuyers and cannot qualify for a mortgage because of inadequate income, excessive debt and/or credit.
Financial Education Seminars
We also offer a variety of seminars for both adults and youth to help participants build beneficial financial skills. Topics include understanding credit, money management, budgeting, banking basics and more.
Community Development and Small Business Lending
Community Development Lending requires innovative thinking and often times the use of diverse partners to manage multiple layers of risk. From pre-development loans to bridge loans to the use of low-income housing tax credits, Dollar Bank’s corporate and commercial real estate lenders work with non-profit organizations, government entities and private borrowers to complete community development projects that spur job growth, enhance the tax base and strengthen the community’s economic viability.
The Small Business Administration has also designated Dollar Bank a Certified SBA Lender in order to help small entrepreneurs obtain the finances they need when they need them.
The longevity and success of Dollar Bank is rooted in an intense effort to provide the products and services that reflect the needs of its customers and in turn, the needs of its communities. Contact us today to talk about the economic development and business opportunities in your community.
