Affordable Housing Advisory Council Nominations

FHLBank San Francisco is accepting nominations for open seats on the Bank’s Affordable Housing Advisory Council (Advisory Council) through June 17, 2024

The 15-member volunteer Advisory Council 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. The Advisory Council is made up of senior executives who volunteer to serve and represent a diverse range of affordable housing and community development organizations operating in the Bank's district of Arizona, California, and Nevada.

The Bank promotes Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at all levels of our organization, including the Advisory Council. 

Members of the Advisory Council must reside in the Bank's district and be employed by a nonprofit or for-profit organization that provides housing or promotes economic development for low- and moderate-income households and communities, or is involved in community lending.

The Advisory Council meets at least quarterly, both in person and virtually, with the Bank's Community Investment team and representatives of the Bank's board of directors. Members are expected to attend substantially all Advisory Council meetings. The Bank reimburses travel expenses for  member attendance at in-person meetings.

Community and nonprofit organizations located in the district are invited to submit nominations for the Advisory Council. Individuals may also nominate themselves by submitting both the nomination and application forms.  

To nominate a candidate or apply to be a nominee for the Advisory Council:

  1. a nominator must complete and submit the Advisory Council Nomination form
  2. a nominee must complete and submit the Advisory Council Application form

June 4, 2024 is the deadline to submit nomination and application forms to Community Investment. Late or incomplete submissions will not be accepted.

We will notify all candidates about the status of their nomination by the end of October.

The Bank and its board of directors highly value the special expertise and perspective on local needs that Advisory Council members bring to furthering our mission of making our communities more vibrant, equitable, and resilient.

Thank you for your assistance in nominating qualified individuals to the Advisory Council.
