Hurricane Harvey Forces Rescheduling of $22K Grant Presentation

New Date & Time: 11:00 a.m., Thursday, September 7, 9
Greenway Plaza, Houston, Texas

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Credit Coalition, a nonprofit organization providing free homebuyer
and financial education to the greater Houston and Beaumont/Port Arthur
areas, will be awarded a total of $22,000 in Partnership Grant Program
(PGP) funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) with
additional contributions from CommunityBank of Texas. The Credit
Coalition will use the funding to continue providing its services at no
cost to qualified consumers.

The media is invited to the check presentation at a new date and
time: 11:00 a.m., Thursday, September 7, 2017, at the CommunityBank of
Texas, located at 9 Greenway Plaza, Suite 110 in Houston, Texas.

PGP awards provide grants to community-based organizations (CBOs) of up
to $12,000. The funds may be used for research, organizational
capacity-building, grant- and funding-application assistance, or
contractual services. Through the PGP, FHLB Dallas matches a member’s
contribution to a CBO of $500 up to $4,000 at a 3:1 ratio for a maximum
$12,000 contribution from FHLB Dallas. Members may contribute more than
the $4,000 amount required to maximize the FHLB Dallas contribution,
increasing the total amount to the organization. The grants are offered
via a lottery system once a year through FHLB Dallas members. In 2017,
FHLB Dallas awarded $300,000 in PGP funds through 31 member institutions
to assist 30 CBOs. Combined with the $104,550 contributed by FHLB Dallas
members, a total of $404,550 was awarded to the organizations. For more
