About Capital One Investing for Good:

Through an integrated program called “Investing for Good,” Capital One focuses its community involvement activities in four areas that are important building blocks of economic opportunity: affordable housing, small business and workforce development, financial literacy and education.

Capital One Bank recognizes that investing in affordable housing is about much more than financing new construction and rehabilitating existing housing. It’s about expanding economic opportunities for individuals, families and communities. Capital One Bank’s Community Development Banking group works with housing authorities, non-profit organizations, for-profit developers and other groups to bring affordable and supportive housing to the communities where they do business. Among the top 10 affordable housing lenders of 2011, Capital One Bank provided $719.2 million in specialized financing for more than 7,200 affordable housing units across their footprint. That investment translates into on average more than 8,700 local jobs created in the first year and 2,160 local jobs on an ongoing basis, based on National Association of Homebuilders estimates.
