FHLBank San Francisco is seeking nominations for an open seat on the Bank’s Affordable Housing Advisory Council.
The Advisory Council is a 15-member volunteer advisory board that helps shape the Bank’s Affordable Housing Program (AHP) and the other homeownership and economic development grant and credit programs the Bank makes available to its member financial institutions. It is made up of senior executives representing a diverse range of affordable housing and community development organizations operating in the Bank’s district of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The Bank and its Board of Directors highly value the special expertise and perspective on local needs that Council members bring to furthering our mission of making our communities more vibrant, equitable, and resilient.
