The Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (FHLB) announced it has given a Community Partnership Award to Norwest Bank South Dakota, N.A. (Norwest) for its work in addressing the affordable housing shortage on Native American reservations in South Dakota.

Using nearly $1.8 million in grants from FHLB's Affordable Housing Program, Norwest partnered with local organizations on constructing and renovating nearly 200 affordable homes on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, the Rosebud Indian Reservation and other reservations in the state.
