Community Investment Advance

A low cost source of funds for loans in your community.

For members of FHLB Des Moines meeting the credit needs of their local community is being a good neighbor and is also good business. Housing and economic development projects are vital to the health of a community. Members can use a Community Investment Advance to support these projects. Members are provided long term fixed rate advances at lower rates for eligible residential and commercial loans. The standard requirements of FHLB Des Moines credit and collateral policies apply to these special advances.

FHLB Des Moines members are provided a Community Investment Advance limit of $10 million effective January 1, 2017. This limit is reduced by the outstanding balance of member Community Investment advances. These limits are subject to program limits for the Commercial Lending Advance or Residential Lending Advance which are established in the Bank’s Community Lending Plan. Contact the Community Investment Department (Opens in New Window) at 800.544.3452, ext. 1173 for assistance in completing an application.
