Create Opportunities that Strengthen your Communities

One of the goals at the HLB is to improve the housing and economic opportunities available to families and communities. We recognize the connection between the strength of a community’s economy and its residents’ ability to afford safe, decent housing. Through our housing and community lending programs, members have access to the financing tools essential for creating a more prosperous environment. By supporting the start-up and growth of local businesses, you ensure that your communities experience steady economic growth. Together, we can continue to create opportunities that strengthen our communities.

Our attractive funding programs include:

Housing Programs

Affordable Housing Program (AHP)
First Home Clubsm (FHC)

Community Lending Programs (CLP)

Disaster Relief Funding: $1 Billion Committed
CLP for Small Business Lending
Community Investment Program (CIP)
- Fresh Start Home Finance Program
Rural Development Advance (RDA)

CLP Advances are the lowest priced source of HLB funding provided to support home financing, housing, and commercial and economic development activities.
