What is Home4Good?

Home4Good helps those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by channeling dollars to local service organizations that know how to help. Funding is offered annually by FHLBank Pittsburgh and the Delaware State Housing Authority, the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency and the West Virginia Housing Development Fund. Continuums of Care and service organizations serving the homeless partner with FHLBank members to apply for Home4Good grants during the funding round. Awards are announced in December.

How Does Home4Good Benefit Members?

FHLBank Pittsburgh members benefit from Home4Good participation in a variety of ways:
  • Community Reinvestment Act credit
  • Good corporate citizenship
  • New business opportunities
  • No disbursement, monitoring or additional work - it's easy!

How to Participate

In 2020, FHLBank and its three Home4Good state housing finance agency partners will disburse approximately $7 million in Home4Good funds through a simplified process to more quickly assist those in need. Beginning in May, funding will be distributed as block grants to Continuum of Care (CoC) organizations in Pennsylvania and West Virginia for them to support priority/emergency needs, and to support a rental/utility program in Delaware. FHLBank members can participate by submitting this member co-applicant form to pledge their Home4Good support. Forms must be emailed to home4good@fhlb-pgh.com by May 15, 2020.
