The Community Heroes Home-ownership Program will allow us to thank our first responders in a meaningful way with a place to call home.
“Home-ownership is more than just the American Dream it is a key to housing affordability, wealth building, improving schools and neighborhood safety. Through this program we can help our workforce to obtain a home in the City where they work, stabilize their housing cost and thank them for their service.” Said Vanessa McCleary, HCD Manager.
FHLBank Atlanta’s Senior Vice President and Director of Community Investment Services, Arthur L. Fleming, noted that the partnership with the City of Tampa will help build strong relationships among FHLBank Atlanta member financial institutions, local governments, and local builders. “Partnering with local entities is in keeping with the mission of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta,” said Fleming. “We are excited to work with the City of Tampa and our participating member financial institutions to help some of our most deserving citizens achieve the dream of owning their own home.” The City of Tampa received a $250,000 grant from the FHLBank of Atlanta to match $750,000 in City funding through the SHIP program.
