Your Federal Home Loan Bank supports strong communities. The formation of a three-tiered approach to giving, the Strong Communities Fund (SCF), recognizes the shared goal that we have with our partners to build strong communities through the creation of safe housing, sustainable economies and good jobs.
Housing programs: provide capital for the purchase, construction, or preservation of affordable housing. Programs include the Competitive Affordable Housing Program, Native American Homeownership Initiative and Homeownership Fund. Click on the Housing Programs tab to access Community Investment program information.
Homebuilding initiatives: contribute both financial and human resources to build or repair homes across FHLB Des Moines five-state district
Community support: assists organizations, through volunteer time, sponsorships and an award program, that create economically vibrant communities
The creation of the Strong Communities Fund will not impact your ability to access funding. No new programs have been created and all programs will continue to operate in their current structure with the current FHLB Des Moines staff.
The Strong Communities Fund simply provides a sense of assurance that our members investment in FHLB Des Moines will yield a community dividend and support for affordable housing and economic development will continue.
