Since 1932, the Federal Home Loan Banks continue to raise billions of dollars in the financial markets for the benefit of their members. Through the FHLBanks, local lending institutions have access to those funds to provide affordable credit within the communities they serve.

The FHLBanks recognize homeownership and economic development as the cornerstones of strong communities. Since 1990, the FHLBanks have contributed more than $4.5 billion toward the completion of 776,000 affordable housing units and have lent $64 billion in low-cost advances for economic development initiatives, resulting in the creation of 744,000 housing units and 223,000 jobs.


The regional nature of the Federal Home Loan Banks enables the system to expand and contract as the needs of member financial institutions and their communities change over time. This flexibility and reliability provide the foundation for the Home Loan Banks’ unique and necessary role in the financial system.

 The demand for smarter regulations, more prudent underwriting and consumer-friendly financial instruments continues to grow. The FHLBanks’ role in keeping low-cost funds flowing to communities remains key to our country’s economic health as we work our way through the problems in the financial markets and beyond.

Lending institutions, policymakers and community leaders agree that the role of the Federal Home Loan Banks has never been more important, especially in today’s  economic environment.
