DALLAS –(BUSINESS WIRE)

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with its member financial institutions, it has awarded $14 million in Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants to 29 projects in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas, which will result in the creation or rehabilitation of 1,853 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’ AHP provides millions of dollars for housing in our District, which our member institutions use to develop and support their communities,” said FHLB Dallas President and CEO Sanjay Bhasin. “It is our privilege to provide a program through which our members can positively impact their communities.”

Since the AHP’s inception in 1990, FHLB Dallas has awarded more than $261 million in AHP and AHP set-aside programs, such as Homebuyer Equity Leverage Partnership and Special Needs Assistance Program, have assisted more than 48,500 households.

Texas Capital Bank was recently recognized by FHLB Dallas for its commitment to community investment. The bank has utilized more than $7 million in FHLB Dallas program funds for its community.

“One of the things we love about utilizing the programs that the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas offers is that we’re able to leverage resources and help organizations make an even greater impact in our community,” said Jenny Leighton-Guzman, vice president at Texas Capital Bank.
