Hartford, CT – The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $125,000 to Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford, Inc. as part of the foundation’s Housing for Everyone grant competition. A total of more than $3 million was provided to 25 nonprofits to improve access to safe, clean and affordable housing in communities from Maine to Florida.

Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford, Inc., a NeighborWorks® America chartered member, creates communities of opportunity by developing and managing high quality, affordable housing, while engaging residents in educational and leadership opportunities in Greater Hartford. The funds from the TD Charitable Foundation will help create 45 units of high-quality, energy-efficient affordable rental housing for low- and moderate-income families at The Hub on Park in Hartford.

“Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford, Inc. is honored and proud to partner with TD Charitable Foundation on this vital affordable housing development,” said Mary Ellen Kowalewski, Board President of Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford, Inc. “The Hub on Park represents a continuation of our 30 years of work in the Frog Hollow neighborhood of Hartford and will bring new homes to what is currently an underutilized and blighted corner.”

According to TD Commercial Market President, Michael LaBella, "The foundation of financial security is built upon having a safe and affordable home. By supporting Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford, we are helping families achieve stability and plan for their financial futures."
