Connecticut Green Bank Strengthens Commitment to Low-Income Residents

The nation's first Green Bank, now in its sixth year, is strengthening its commitment to Connecticut's low-to-moderate income residents by welcoming a veteran professional in affordable housing development and finance to its board of directors.

The Connecticut Speaker of the House appointed Betsy Crum, Executive Director of the Women’s Institute for Housing and Economic Development, to Connecticut Green Bank’s (CGB) board last month, showing the importance CGB places on Crum’s broad and deep relationships in the affordable housing sector.

Established in 2011, CGB was the first green bank in the United States and is now a partner in the Green Bank Network spearheaded by NRDC. Green banks are public or quasi-public financing authorities established specifically to facilitate private investment into low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure.
