Strengthening Communities Together
In an effort to support the Bank’s public policy mission, a non-partisan public policy network – Strengthening Communities Together (SCT) – was formed to bring together individuals and organizations that have a shared belief in the importance of strong communities supported by the FHLBank System and its member financial institutions. SCT encourages supporters to be advocates with policymakers for the continuation of a safe and sound FHLBank System.
Whether you are a member of FHLB Des Moines, a non-profit organization or an individual who has benefited from a member financial institution, joining the SCT network provides you with valuable information and the opportunity to strengthen your community.
