AHP Proposed Rule: MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

housing montage

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to amend the Affordable Housing Program (AHP) regulation. The proposed amendments will affect how the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) members, its housing partners, and other community stakeholders use the AHP program and how affordable housing is funded across our region.

Public comments are due to the FHFA by Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

We have prepared a summary of the proposed amendments and provided additional information about the proposals that we believe will most affect members' and housing providers' strategies for meeting community needs.

Don't miss this opportunity to share your expertise about how AHP funds can be most impactful in your community. 

Creating affordable housing is the work of many hands,
and it will take many voices to ensure the sustainable success of the AHP. 

We encourage our members and affordable housing partners to review the information below and submit comments to the FHFA.

 OVERVIEW


The proposed rule to amend the AHP regulation offers some benefits, but it also poses a number of challenges. The primary challenge is the proposed "outcomes" framework —  it requires that a significant proportion of the program’s funds go toward projects that meet priorities established by the FHFA. The outcomes framework increases the complexity of the AHP and limits the Federal Home Loan Banks' ability to respond to local affordable housing needs.
