The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) announced that in partnership with its member financial institutions, it has awarded $ 7.5 million in Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants to 10 projects in Texas. The subsidies will result in the creation or rehabilitation of 986 housing units.

“FHLB Dallas member institutions play an important role in funding affordable housing initiatives in their communities,” said FHLB Dallas President and CEO Sanjay Bhasin. “The AHP enables our members to provide millions of dollars across our district to improve the lives of those who need it most. “

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

Between 1990 and 2020, FHLB Dallas awarded more than $ 323 million under AHP and Home Ownership Reserve programs, such as down payment assistance program, reparation program and home modification for the elderly and disabled and a disaster recovery program to help more than 57,000 households.

Beatrice Kelly, senior vice president and director of community development loans at Comerica Bank, said the bank has benefited from the program for several years.

“Comerica Bank is honored to be a part of the Affordable Housing Program as we work to raise expectations and make impactful investments in the communities we serve through strategic partnerships,” said Kelly. “As a long-time member of the FHLB Dallas, we have helped create economic opportunities in areas that need our support. We are grateful for the program and its continued commitment to advancing financial inclusion.
