Blog Comment Policy

The goal of our FHLB Des Moines Strengthening Communities Together (SCT) blog is to share ideas and information with as many individuals as possible. We are excited that you want to be part of the conversation and we encourage your comments.

Please be aware that comments are monitored by FHLB Des Moines staff, and we reserve the right not to post comments that are off-topic or promotional in nature. Additionally, all links posted as comments will be reviewed and may be deleted. We ask that comments remain "on-topic" which means that they must relate to the topic being discussed within the blog post or a previous comment existing within the same comment thread.
