Home Federal Bank Added to America's Community Bankers NASDAQ Index

NAMPA, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 11, 2005 -- Home Federal Bank (NASDAQ: HOME) is pleased to announce that it was added to America's Community Bankers (ACB) NASDAQ index. The index includes more than 500 community banks with a market capitalization in excess of $190 billion.

The index is the most broadly representative stock index for the community bank segment of the banking industry. ACB and NASDAQ launched the index in December 2003 to bring greater visibility to community banks, and in turn, promote greater market liquidity and fairer valuations.

The index includes banks and thrifts listed on the NASDAQ, with the exception of the 50 largest bank and thrift charters based on asset size, banks classified as having an "international specialization," and banks classifieds as having a "credit card specialization." Asset size and business classifications are based on the most recently available FDIC data.

Home Federal currently trades on the NASDAQ under the symbol "HOME." The complete list of banks listed in the ACB NASDAQ index can be accessed on ACB's website at www.AmericasCommunityBankers.com.

Home Federal Bank, headquartered in Nampa, Idaho, operates a total of 15 stores, including five full-service locations inside Wal-Mart stores, and two lending centers throughout the Treasure Valley. The company serves the Treasure Valley with a full range of deposit and lending services, including their signature Totally Free Checking. Visit Home Federal on the Web at www.myhomefed.com.
