Grants for New England Partnerships

Through this program, FHLBank Boston partners with members to provide grants to nonprofit organizations that offer critical services to the communities our members serve. Grants have assisted organizations that provide a variety of services, including emergency shelter for homeless individuals, housing for people with disabilities, and hospice care.

How It Works

FHLBank Boston determines which members are eligible to request a grant, depending on the housing and community investment programs in which they participate.*  In many cases, members select to match the grant that is awarded, doubling the impact to the recipient organization.
