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) 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

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
