Texas Properties Getting $2M In Affordable Housing Grants
The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas awarded nearly $8M in Affordable Housing Program grants to 27 projects, including four Texas properties.
FHLB Dallas returns 10% of its annual profits in AHP grants to the communities served by member institutions.
Low-income, elderly and special needs residents can take advantage of the grants by way of member institutions. The funds can be used for closing costs, down payments, or construction for multifamily communities or single-family homes.
