Partnership Grant Program from FHLB Dallas Matches Members’ Donations at a 3:1 Ratio

DALLAS, TEXAS, July 19, 2017 – Feeding hungry children in Arkansas and meeting basic needs of homeless Mississippians are just two of the causes championed by 30 community-based organizations (CBO) receiving $404,550 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) and 31 of its member institutions.

Through this unique grant program, FHLB Dallas member institutions contribute $500 up to $4,000 to a CBO, which FHLB Dallas matches at a 3:1 ratio to provide the CBO up to $12,000 in grant money. Grants are awarded annually through FHLB Dallas’ member institutions via a lottery system. In 2017, FHLB Dallas awarded $300,000 in PGP funds that were combined with the $104,550 contributed by FHLB Dallas members for a total of $404,550 to the organizations.

Partnership grants may be used to:

  • Offset operational and administrative expenses
  • Purchase or rent equipment or software
  • Hire staff and/or consultants
  • Secure training, consulting or technical support
  • Sponsor special program-related events
  • Conduct research or studies related to economic development or affordable housing projects
  • Hire professional contractors such as architects, engineers, grant writers or accountants

“The PGP is designed to promote and strengthen relationships between community-based organizations and FHLB Dallas members,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “Through our members’ firsthand community knowledge, these partnerships equip nonprofits to better address citizens’ often-underserved needs.”

Below is the complete list of the 2017 PGP grant recipients. For more information about the 2017 PGP grants and other FHLB Dallas community investment products and programs, please visit fhlb.com/community.
