How We Serve

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis (FHLBI) is a regional wholesale bank that has been meeting the liquidity needs of member financial institutions throughout Indiana and Michigan since 1932. Our core mission is to provide a reliable source of liquidity to member banks, credit unions, community development financial institutions, and insurance companies to support housing finance, asset-liability management, and community lending.  We also help communities and families through grants and low-cost loans to our members that help support affordable housing and economic development initiatives.

FHLBI is one of 11 regional banks that make up the Federal Home Loan Bank System. FHLBanks are government-sponsored enterprises created by Congress to ensure access to low-cost funding for their member financial institutions. FHLBanks are privately capitalized and funded, and receive no Congressional appropriations. The FHLBI is owned by its approximately 400 Indiana and Michigan financial institution members.
