 FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK OF PITTSBURGH SUBSIDIZES $895,000
 OF LOW-COST HOUSING IN FAIRMONT, W.VA.
 PITTSBURGH, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh is providing $134,600 to City National Bank of Fairmont to subsidize low-cost housing in Fairmont, W.Va., announced James D. Roy, president.
 "Our subsidies will help create $895,000 of affordable housing in Fairmont," Roy said.
 The funding will result in rehabilitation of 62 housing units for low-income residents. Forty-six of the units are earmarked for very low-income buyers. The project, sponsored by Community Works of West Virginia, Inc., will provide buyers with low-cost loans, mortgage insurance and weatherization assistance.
 The Federal Home Loan Bank's financial institution members work with nonprofit organizations that offer housing for moderate-, low- and very low-income households to rent or purchase. The projects chosen are funded through the bank's Affordable Housing Program (AHP). It provides member institutions with below-market-rate loans and direct grants, which they pass on to qualified project developers.
 This year, funding for projects throughout the bank's three-state district totals $2.3 million. The funding will be combined with other sources to create more than $27 million in total development. This will result in more than 550 housing units.
 Last year -- AHP's first year -- the Pittsburgh bank awarded $3.7 million in subsidies for projects throughout the district. That amount was combined with other funding sources to create $35 million of development, resulting in construction of 800 housing units. AHP is funded by a percentage of the bank's net earnings.
