Affordable Housing Program
Affordable Housing Program (AHP) Overview
The 2020 Affordable Housing Program Round is now closed.
Each year since 1990, the FHLBNY has set aside 10% of its private earnings to support the creation and preservation of housing for lower income families and individuals through the Affordable Housing Program (AHP). AHP funds are awarded to members who submit applications on behalf of project sponsors who are planning to purchase, rehabilitate, or construct affordable homes or apartments. Funds are awarded through a competitive process which typically takes place either once or twice a year, at the FHLBNY’s discretion.
