Since 2014, the Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC) of Lake County has been a grant recipient of Associated Bank. This grant affords AHC the opportunity to provide homeowners with financial assistance to make repairs, upgrades and accessibility improvements.

In 2015, Associated Bank’s donation helped Lake County resident Jonathan Seiver stay in his home through AHC’s Home and Accessibility Improvements grant.

Soon after purchasing a home Jonathan found himself in a situation where his wheelchair ramp was no longer safe to use and other major problems had him pondering where he would gather the funds to make needed repairs. With the funds from Associated Bank’s grant, AHC provided Jonathan the opportunity to purchase a new ramp and make changes to his home so that it would be safe and accessible. In an effort to give back and help others facing similar obstacles, Jonathan now serves on the board of directors of AHC.

“Associated Bank is committed to fostering stronger, stable neighborhoods and economic growth in the communities we serve,” said Jill Wiess, corporate social responsibility manager.  “Affordable Housing Corporation is an important partner which allows us to do so throughout Lake County.”
