Share Article

Seedco Financial, a subsidiary of Seedco, is working to create opportunities for those in underserved developments to benefit from green living

In an article of Birmingham Business Journal on October 3, 2008, Seedco Financial spoke about their Green Building Program. Seedco Financial's non-profit programs help poor communities to flourish by providing them with the affordable financing and comprehensive technical assistance.

The organization operates by raising money from businesses within the local community and applying it to strengthen the foundation of the homes, businesses, and organizations that reside there.

The Green Building Program supports developers in an effort to provide affordable green housing to households that could otherwise not afford it.

Ivan Holloway, Vice President of Alabama Field Operations for Seedco told the Birmingham Business Journal, "One of the things we have noticed is that when people talk about green building, it is only for people who can afford the cost it takes to incorporate these aspects into houses"

The goal of green housing is to build homes that are environmentally conscious and do not promote or create waste that can be detrimental to the surrounding areas. The funding is obtained through training, loans and grants. Seedco Financial reaches out to financial intuitions within a given community, and the amount of aid they are able to give depends on the financing they are able to ascertain.
