FHLBNY Awards $33.6 Million for 57 Affordable Housing Initiatives

Combined projects will create or rehabilitate more than 2,800 affordable housing units throughout New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania

New York, NY -- Alfred A. DelliBovi, President and CEO of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, announced that the Bank has awarded $33.6 million in subsidies to fund 57 affordable housing initiatives throughout New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania. These awards are funded through the Bank’s Affordable Housing Program (“AHP”), and will result in the creation or rehabilitation of 2,837 affordable housing units, including more than 2,200 units dedicated to very low-income housing and nearly 2,700 units of affordable rental housing. The awards will not only help provide housing, but also drive community development: it is anticipated that more than $486 million in development costs will be generated from the development of these initiatives.

“Safe, decent and affordable housing is vital not only to the stability of our economy, but our communities and families, as well,” said Mr. DelliBovi. “The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York is proud to offer this funding to continue to support those who strengthen the foundation of this cornerstone of the American Dream. We thank all of our partners – the local lenders, the housing groups and our elected officials – for their continued support of the Affordable Housing Program, and their work towards revitalizing our country’s housing sector.”

The $33.6 million announced today are funds drawn from the Bank’s earnings. As mandated by Congress, the Bank forgoes 10 percent of its earnings to support these neighborhood housing and economic development initiatives.

The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York’s AHP provides member-lenders with direct subsidies which are passed on to income-qualified households through sponsoring local nonprofit organizations. AHP financing is combined with other funding sources to create housing for
moderate-, low- and very low-income families. Program awardees receive this funding through a competitive application process. Each competing project must be sponsored by a financial organization that is a member of the Bank in partnership with a community-based sponsoring organization.

The Federal Home Loan Banks have distributed $4.3 billion in AHP funds since 1990. At the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, the AHP has supported more than 1,300 projects with grants of more than $425 million, creating nearly 59,000 units of affordable housing and generating an estimated $8.2 billion in total development costs.

Vernon, New York, New Rochelle, Niagara Falls, North Tonawanda, Norwich, Ossining, Rochester, Rome, Seneca Falls, Syracuse and Webster.
