Every day, we strive to create a better future for the citizens of Jefferson County. Whether it’s our involvement in a multi-million dollar New Markets Tax Credit project, or a start-up business loan program for entrepreneurs seeking to provide a much-needed service to an underserved neighborhood, Metro Bank is always seeking to make a positive impact in our community.
Building a Brighter Future for the People of Jefferson County
Metro Bank is not the typical traditional bank. We are the only Bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky certified by the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund . Our model is based on building and maintaining strong relationships with partners who share our vision of economic growth.
Our vision is to create a better quality of life for underserved residents and businesses in Jefferson County, Kentucky by providing access to flexible capital that facilitates job creation, job retention, and access to goods and services.
What Sets Metro Bank Apart?
Being a CDFI allows the Bank to participate in various CDFI Fund programs. The CDFI Fund was created for the purpose of promoting economic revitalization and community development through investment in and assistance to community development financial institutions. The CDFI Fund’s mission is to expand the capacity of financial institutions to provide credit, capital, and financial services to underserved populations and communities in the United States.
The Bank’s sole shareholder is Louisville Development Bancorp (LDB). LDB is a shareholder owned, for-profit, bank-holding company created in 1996 for the purpose of stimulating economic growth within 12 inner-city neighborhoods. Since that time, we have expanded our services to include all of Jefferson County.
