Media Advisory: Military Veteran Receives Grant Funds to Repair Home

First National Bank Texas (FNBT) and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) will present a military veteran with a $10,000 Housing Assistance for Veterans (HAVEN) grant which he will use to make significant repairs to the foundation of his home.

The media is encouraged to attend the ceremonial check presentation at the home of Army National Guard veteran David Balderas, where representatives of FNBT and FHLB Dallas will join him and his family.

HAVEN funds assist with necessary modifications to homes of U.S. veterans and active duty, reserve or National Guard service members who became disabled as a result of their military service since September 11, 2001. Alternatively, the funds can be awarded to Gold Star Families that were impacted during this time frame for home repairs/rehabilitation. HAVEN also allows the use of the funds for down payment and closing cost assistance. Visit for more information.
