The Subsidies Will Result in the Creation or Rehabilitation of Nearly 3,000 Housing Units

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with its member financial institutions, it has awarded $19.3 million in Affordable Housing Program (AHP) subsidies to 38 projects in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas. The subsidies will result in the creation or rehabilitation of 2,749 housing units.

?The funding announced today will go a long way toward meeting the housing needs across the District. We are grateful for our participating member institutions that have made affordable housing a priority,? said FHLB Dallas President and CEO Sanjay Bhasin.

FHLB Dallas annually returns 10 percent of its profits in the form of AHP subsidies to the communities served by its member institutions. AHP funding is utilized for a variety of projects, including home rehabilitation and modifications for low-income, elderly and special-needs residents; down payment and closing-cost assistance for qualified first-time homebuyers; and the construction of low-income, multifamily rental communities and single-family homes.

Since the AHP?s inception in 1990, FHLB Dallas has awarded more than $324 million through AHP and AHP set-aside programs, such as the Homebuyer Equity Leverage Partnership, the Special Needs Assistance Program and Disaster Rebuilding Assistance to help more than 56,500 households.

Lara Conway, First National Bank consumer loan officer, is pleased that FHLB Dallas offers a program like AHP to help individuals and families who need it most.

?Our partnership with Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas is extremely valuable to us,? Mrs. Conway said. ?Through the AHP subsidy, the Mescalero Apache Tribe Housing Department will be able to better serve our Mescalero community, and at a time when people are cutting back, receiving these funds makes all the difference.?

Below is a state-by-state listing of the 2020 AHP subsidies. For more information about the 2020 AHP subsidies and other FHLB Dallas community investment products and programs, please visit fhlb.com/ahp.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
