Strong Communities Award

Seven community projects will receive a total of $45,000 as Strong Communities Award winners and finalists.

2019 Award Winners

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.

Now in its seventh year, the award demonstrates the value that communities throughout the FHLB Des Moines district derive from small business and economic development projects. The award recognizes collaboration and leadership in communities by measuring the results of these projects and their impact on creating stronger communities.
