Application and Forms
To obtain a Community Investment Advance a Request for Funds form must be submitted that identifies qualified lending or investment activity by the member. An advance equal to the funded amount of the loan or investment may be obtained, up to the member limit. The Request form must be signed by an authorized representative of the member who will certify that the information provided to qualify for the advance is true and correct. Fax the completed Request form to the FHLB Des Moines at 515.699.1270. Please allow at least 24 hours for processing. Members will be contacted when the advance is approved. Contact the Community Investment Department for additional assistance.
New forms became available in February 2021. Please use the forms below to submit a request for funds.
Qualifying an Advance Request
Instruction for qualifying loans to obtain an advance, and information requirements for eligible loans, is included in each of the Request forms. Utilize the project description box on the Request forms, or attach the applicable Loan Documentation Spreadsheets provided below, to describe the loans that will be used to qualify the advance request.
Loan Documentation Spreadsheets
For some loans, additional information may be required, as described in the Request forms.
Important: The standard requirements of FHLB Des Moines credit and collateral policies apply. In addition, an approved Request for Funds is not a reservation of funds. Applications are funded on a “first-come, first-served” basis, subject to the availability of funds. A Request for Funds does not provide a rate-lock or reservation of an advance rate. Rates are determined at the time of the advance.
