Partnership Grant Program

Member Submission Window: May 23 to June 30, 2022 

For 2022, FHLB Dallas has allocated $400,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds to assist community-based organizations (CBOs).
PGP awards provide 3:1 matches of member contributions to provide grants up to $12,000 that help promote and strengthen relationships between CBOs and FHLB Dallas members. The PGP also complements the development activities fostered by FHLB Dallas' Affordable Housing and Community Investment programs.

2021 PGP Recipients

FHLB Dallas awarded $400,000 in Partnership Grant Program funds, and its members provided an additional $200,250 for a total of $600,250 awarded to community-based organizations.

PGP Awards are Based on Member Contributions

PGP awards are matched by the member's contribution to a CBO of $500 up to $4,000 at a 3:1 ratio. PGP grants are offered once a year through FHLB Dallas' member institutions via a lottery system.

Eligible CBOs

The CBO must have 501(c)(3) recognition by the IRS and be involved with affordable housing, stimulating small business development or providing small business technical assistance within the District. Total revenues may not exceed $600,000.
