Adult Literacy Center receives $16K grant from LegacyTexas and Federal Home Loan Bank
 
LegacyTexas Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB)presented the Richardson Adult Literacy Center with a $16,000 Partnership Grant Program (PGP) grant to support operational and administrative costs for the center’s “ESL for Adults” program. The program helps adult students improve their English to become workforce-ready, enhance job skills, obtain U.S. citizenship and fully engage in the community.
 
PGP awards provide 3:1 matches of 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 awarded $300,000 in PGP funds through 31 member institutions to assist 32 community-based organizations. Combined with the $114,010 contributed by FHLB Dallas members, a total of $414,010 has been awarded to the organizations.
