NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) and member institution IBERIABANK will present a $16,000 Partnership Grant Program (PGP) award to the Faubourg Lafitte Tenants' Association at 3:30 p.m., Friday, November 6, 2015. The media is encouraged to attend.
Before Hurricane Katrina, the Lafitte Housing Project once stood on 27 acres of what is now the Faubourg Lafitte neighborhood. The Faubourg Lafitte Tenants' Association, incorporated in 2012, has an all-volunteer board of 10 directors to oversee the nonprofit, which represents more than 900 neighborhood residents. The PGP grant will be used for organizational capacity-building, stipends, transportation costs, and special events.
PGP awards provide grants up to $12,000 to community-based organizations (CBOs). The funds may be used for research, organizational capacity-building, grant- and funding-application assistance, or contractual services. Through PGP awards, FHLB Dallas matches a member's contribution to a CBO of $500 up to $4,000 at a 3:1 ratio. The grants are offered via a lottery system once a year through FHLB Dallas members. In 2015, FHLB Dallas awarded $225,000 in PGP funds. For more information, visit fhlb.com.
