Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas Awards $7 Million in Affordable Housing Grants

Grants Will Result in the Creation or Rehabilitation of 1,108 Housing Units

DALLAS--()--The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with its member financial institutions, it has awarded $7 million in Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants to 19 projects in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, which will result in the creation or rehabilitation of 1,108 housing units.

FHLB Dallas annually returns 10 percent of its profits in the form of AHP grants to the communities served by its member institutions. AHP funding is utilized for a variety of projects, including home rehabilitation and modifications for low-income, elderly and special-needs residents; down payment and closing-cost assistance for qualified first-time homebuyers; and the construction of low-income, multifamily rental communities and single-family homes.

“FHLB Dallas’ member institutions serve their communities well through active involvement in affordable housing development,” said FHLB Dallas President and CEO Sanjay Bhasin. “Their membership in FHLB Dallas provides a bridge to the AHP and other grant programs that annually provide millions of dollars for housing in our District.”
