On Friday, February 27, Nick Lambrow, President of the Delaware Region for M&T Bank, presented a $75,000 grant to the Wilmington Housing Partnership. The grant was presented at their Defiance Property in the Browntown neighborhood of Wilmington, Del.
This funding will serve to support the Wilmington Housing Partnership’s initiatives to build quality, affordable, housing in Wilmington by renovating existing homes and supporting construction of new homes in select areas.
In commenting on the grant, Nick Lambrow said, “At M&T Bank, we believe the positive transformation of communities and neighborhoods begins with quality, affordable housing. When we give families the opportunity to establish strong roots, we ensure that each community is cared for by its residents and neighbors. As a result, positive changes occur and businesses and opportunities tend to grow.”
Lambrow was joined by M&T representatives Hughlett Kirby, Relationship Manager and Wilmington Housing Partnership Board Member, and Beryl Barmore, Regional CRA Officer. The grant was presented to Steve Martin, Executive Director of Wilmington Housing Partnership and Natalie Howe, Contract Manager at the Wilmington Housing Partnership.
