Cadence Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas awarded $10,000 to Sacred Heart Southern Missions Housing Corp.
WALLS, MISSISSIPPI, November 10, 2022 — Cadence Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) awarded $10,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funding to Sacred Heart Southern Missions Housing Corp. (Sacred Heart) today during a ceremonial check presentation in Walls, Mississippi. 

Sacred Heart assists low-income homeowners and renters with various social services and educational programs, including job training, credit counseling, budgeting and homebuyer education. It plans to use the grant to assist with economic and rental assistance for low-income residents, homeownership classes and adult education.

“FHLB Dallas’ matching-fund grant program enables us to triple our impact,” said Ritchie Hampton, president of the DeSoto County, Mississippi, market at Cadence Bank. “We are thankful for this opportunity to pool our funds to help Sacred Heart.”

FHLB Dallas matches member contributions of $500 to $4,000 at a 3:1 ratio through the PGP to promote and strengthen relationships between community-based organizations and FHLB Dallas members.

“Our city’s low-income residents have been hit hard by current economic conditions, which have included rising prices for food, utilities and housing,” said Laura Grisham, PR, communications and grants manager for Sacred Heart. “We are thankful for this funding, which will enable us to help some of our city’s most vulnerable residents.”

Together, Cadence Bank and FHLB Dallas awarded $99,379 in PGP Funding to nine nonprofits in Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas this year.

“Our partnership with Cadence Bank has resulted in grants for multiple nonprofits in several states,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “It’s been a great relationship that has stood the test of time.”
