FHLB Dallas and Veritex Community Bank Provide Partnership Grant Program Funds

HOUSTON, TEXAS, September 19, 2022 — Veritex Community Bank (Veritex) and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) awarded $10,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funding to Woman Inc., a Houston nonprofit that creates housing for women leaving abusive or high-risk situations. 

The funds were presented during a ceremonial check presentation today.

“We are grateful for this funding from Veritex and FHLB Dallas that will assist us in case management to help our clients improve their educational and skill levels to overcome barriers to finding higher-paying jobs,” said Michaelle Wormly, executive director of Woman Inc.

PGP grants help qualified nonprofit organizations fund a variety of operational and administrative activities critical to serving their communities.

“Woman Inc. is making a positive difference in the Houston community and serves as a vital resource for women who are in dire situations,” said Veritex Senior Vice President of Community Development Courtney Taylor. “It is an honor for us to be able to provide this funding through our partnership with FHLB Dallas.”

In 2022, FHLB Dallas awarded $400,000 in PGP grants, and its members provided an additional $158,985 for an impact of $558,985 in its five-state District of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas.

“We commend Veritex’s commitment to enriching the Texas communities it serves,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “Our partnership with Veritex and the matching-grant nature of the PGP has enabled us to further the important work Woman Inc. is doing to help at-risk women.”
