Developing Partnerships

Developing partnerships is key to accessing our grant programs. We were excited to offer you opportunities to make connections at the Workshops. If you indicated during registration that you had a project that you were seeking partnerships, we will be following up with you. Additionally, if you are a FHLBank Member or Community Partner that would like us to contact you about developing partnerships, please contact Megan Coler-Hasser at mcoler@fhlbi.com .
