Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta Announces $55 Million Available Through 2024 Affordable Housing Program General Fund 
Applications for affordable housing grants will be accepted starting June 27


ATLANTA, April 16, 2024 — Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (FHLBank Atlanta) announced today that it will accept applications for its 2024 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) General Fund round starting June 27, 2024, through July 29, 2024. FHLBank Atlanta is making a record amount available since the program’s inception in 1990 – approximately $55 million – and applicants may apply for up to $1 million in grant funding per project to support the acquisition, construction, or rehabilitation of multifamily and single-family housing.

“Each year, the General Fund provides an opportunity for financial institutions to work with for-profit and nonprofit developers and community partners to improve access to affordable housing,” said FHLBank Atlanta President and CEO Kirk Malmberg. “The FHLBank System’s AHP General Fund is one of the largest sources of private funding for affordable housing in the country and our grants make a considerable impact within the communities across our district.”

FHLBank Atlanta will host a series of webinars for member financial institutions and the developer community, offering training on the application process. Webinar information and registration is available on the FHLBank Atlanta website. Sponsors and developers must work with a FHLBank Atlanta member financial institution to complete and submit the online application by the July 29 application deadline. Nonprofit, for-profit, and local government sponsors and developers can learn more by reviewing the AHP Implementation Plan for application guidelines and requirements. 

“In 2024 alone, FHLBank Atlanta will disburse more than $100 million in grants for affordable housing and community development, and more than half of that is through our AHP General Fund,” said FHLBank Atlanta Senior Vice President and Director of Community Investment Services Tomeka Strickland. “Since the inception of the program in 1990, FHLBank Atlanta has awarded more than $866 million through the General Fund, helping to finance more than 134,000 housing opportunities for moderate, low- and very low-income households.”
