Awarded annually by FHLB Dallas member institutions, Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds help promote and strengthen relationships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and FHLB Dallas members. FHLB Dallas matches member contributions from $500 to $4,000 at a ratio of 3:1.

“Northshore Housing Initiative supports Home Bank’s mission to meet the needs of our communities with affordable workforce housing,” said Kelvin Luster, director of community development at Home Bank. “We are incredibly honored to support Northshore Housing Initiative alongside FHLB Dallas, which has allowed our investment to go further.”

NHI will use proceeds from its PGP grant to expand its community trust fund. The trust acquires land and retains permanent ownership. He enters into a renewable long-term lease instead of a traditional sale with home buyers. When the owner sells, the family earns a portion of the increased property value and the rest is retained by the trust to preserve affordability for future low-to-moderate income families.

NHI is one of seven local nonprofits that Home Bank is supporting with PGP funding this year. Together, Home Bank and FHLB Dallas paid out more than $67,000 to seven CBOs in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

“Home Bank pours its resources into communities,” said Greg Hettrick, senior vice president and director of community investment at FHLB Dallas. “It is an honor to partner with a financial institution that demonstrates such a commitment to addressing affordable housing needs in its community.”
