OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS — bankHometown donated $10,000 to Fitchburg-based NewVue Communities’ Regional Economic Rebuild Campaign, a fundraising campaign through the Community Investment Tax Credit Program. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to creating strong and healthy neighborhoods by helping families, small businesses, and communities with homeownership, housing development, community organizing, and small business technical assistance.

While NewVue’s traditional programs and services continue, their COVID-19 recovery services also include foreclosure and eviction prevention counseling as well as helping businesses with reopening plans and applying for grants and loans. Their regional initiative also includes the continued development of safe and affordable housing.

“The economic impact of the pandemic on our communities and local business has caused great hardship and has further intensified NewVue Communities’ commitment to respond with strong and carefully planned programs and services. bankHometown’s early and strong support for our Regional Economic Rebuild Campaign means the world to us,” said Marc Dohan, Executive Director at NewVue Communities. “The bank has chosen to double the value of their support and that is what the Community Investment Tax Credit Program is all about.”

“NewVue Communities has a history of delivering programs that help people realize their dreams of homeownership, small business ownership, and financial independence,” said bankHometown President and CEO Robert J. Morton. “We’re proud to partner with them to help deliver critical programs that lift up and support people in our neighborhoods so they can realize their full potential.”

The Community Investment Tax Credit Program allows individuals, business, and foundations who donate $1,000 and greater to the campaign to receive a 50% tax credit.
