The PGP also complements the development activities fostered by FHLB Dallas' Affordable Housing and Community Investment programs.

PGP Awards are Based on Member Contributions

PGP awards are matched by the member's contribution to a CBO of $500 up to $5,000 at a 5:1 ratio. PGP grants are offered once a year through FHLB Dallas' member institutions via a lottery system.
