Organizations we support

  • Community Development Corporations (CDCs) that focus on revitalizing the areas in which they are located; typically, underserved neighborhoods that have experienced disinvestment.
  • Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) and other developers of affordable housing that build or renovate 1-4 family homeownership and multi-family affordable housing.
  • SBICs and SBA-certified development corporations that can help grow small businesses, especially Minority- and Women-owned Business Enterprises.

Meet our Community Liaison Officers

Body (Limited)

Webster's network of Community Liaison Officers (CLOs) support communities within our expanded footprint. The CLOs work in partnership with Webster's Office of Corporate Responsibility (OCR) to provide support and financial education to low-to-moderate income (LMI) and minority borrowers. They also work to increase lending options to meet local credit needs, especially for first-time homebuyers.
