ReFrame Conference 2021: Federal & FHLB Funding

Posted By: Adrienne Osborne (deleted) Video Library,

In this session, ReFrame members will share about their experience with utilizing federal government funding and Federal Home Loan Bank fundings for home repair projects.

Bobby Eason with Blount County Habitat will talk about how to help clients apply for USDA 504 loans for low-income rural clients and grants for very-low-income rural adults. He'll also talk briefly about the Carol M. Peterson Housing Fund which is available from the Cincinnati Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) for nonprofits in KY, TN, and OH.

Lynette Farhart with Project Houseworks will talk about the FHLB Affordable Housing Program. By law, each FHLB must establish an Affordable Housing Program (AHP), and must contribute 10% of its earnings to its AHP.

Dan Sargent with Rebuilding Together of the Triangle will share about USDA 533 Home Preservation Grants - how to apply, what projects the grants can fund, tips, tricks, etc.

Becca Davis, Executive Director of ReFrame, will moderate the session and also share briefly about opportunities to access federal funding for home repairs for Veterans through the Specially Adapted Housing program. Veterans are eligible to receive up to $2,000 for home repairs related to non-service-connected disabilities and up to $6,800 for home repairs related to service-connected disabilities through the Home Improvements and Structural Alterations (HISA) grant, and can designate a nonprofit as the contractor.

Thank you to Fahe for sponsoring this session!
