Many FHLBank Indianapolis members have told us that affordable housing and community development is a significant need in their area, but the lack of having a resident expert in their organization is keeping them from participating in our grant programs.

That’s why, in 2022, we are launching the Community Catalyst Training Series. This program will provide the background knowledge and training needed for staff to get started with affordable housing and community development.

With member input, the training series was designed to explore the following topics more in-depth.  Each session of this four-part virtual training series will build off each other to help attendees get a better understanding of financial institution’s role in affordable housing and community development and how they can best utilize the programs and products from FHLBank Indianapolis to support their local communities. Participants must be able to attend all four of the following training sessions:

  • Intro to Affordable and Community Development Financing - Tuesday, January 11
  • Relationships Needed for Affordable Housing and Community Development - Tuesday, January 18
  • Financial Institutions Role in Different Project Types - Tuesday, January 25
  • How Financial Institutions Build Organizational Support - Tuesday, February 1
