Founded in 1904, United Bank is a community bank that is deeply rooted in the communities it serves through its 17 branches. The bank’s community development initiatives are directed towards improving the social and economic conditions of the distressed communities and underserved individuals throughout rural southwest Alabama and northwest Florida. United Bank is a certified Community Development Financial Institution, and was a recipient of the 2011 FDIC Chairman’s Award for Excellence for developing a checking account for consumers with low or no credit scores. In all things, United Bank seeks to accomplish its mission of “Strength through service excellence.”
Earlier this month, UB Community Development, a partner of United Bank, provided Capital Magnet Funds to the Community Action Partnership of North Alabama (CAPNA) and The Bennett Group to be used for the construction of The Village, a 56-unit, affordable multi-family project. "Rising construction costs and falling equity prices were going to leave us with a significant gap in funding," said Dave Truitt, director of real estate at CAPNA. "Due to UBCD and United Bank providing the Capital Magnet funds for our project, we were able to close our gap in financing and...provide 56 units of safe, beautiful, and affordable housing for seniors in Moody."
United Bank of Alabama has maintained its 5-Star Superior rating from Bauer Financial, which recognizes a bank's financial strength and performance based on their profitability, capital, level of delinquent loans, among other factors.
