Every year the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines highlights the leadership and work of our member financial institutions and their community partners by awarding the Strong Communities Award. In light of the far-reaching effects of COVID-19 on our communities, we are proud to offer the Strong Communities Award this year. The award recognizes collaboration and leadership in communities by measuring the results of these projects and their impact on creating stronger communities.
Two first place winners - one in the Rural category and one in the Urban category - will win $15,000. All runner-up finalists will receive $3,000.
