Affordable Housing Program (AHP)

Under the Federal Home Loan Bank Act, the specified uses of the Affordable Housing Program (AHP) funds are to finance the purchase, construction, or rehabilitation of owner-occupied housing for low- or moderate-income households, and the purchase, construction, or rehabilitation of rental housing where at least 20 percent of the units are affordable for and occupied by very low-income households. The AHP leverages other types of financing and supports affordable housing for special needs and homeless families, among other groups.  The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) also administers similar programs, including the the Community Investment Program, Community Development Cash Advances, and the Community Support Program.
