Banks Partner to Award $6K to Educate Houston's Underserved Men and Male Youth

Career Gear, a nonprofit organization that empowers low-income men to overcome barriers and achieve self-sufficiency, will be awarded $6,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP (News - Alert)) funds from Green Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas). The grant will support costs for Career Gear's Business Enterprise Program, a program that helps men prepare to become construction business trade owners with a designated area of focus.

The media is invited to the check presentation at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 10 at Green Bank at 4000 Greenbriar Drive in Houston.

PGP awards provide 3:1 matches of FHLB Dallas member contributions to provide grants up to $12,000 that help promote and strengthen relationships between community-based organizations and FHLB Dallas members. The PGP also complements the development activities fostered by FHLB Dallas' Affordable Housing and Community Investment programs. For 2018, FHLB Dallas has awarded $300,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds through 31 member institutions to assist 32 community-based organizations.
