Who May Apply?
A community housing organization or a developer, known as a sponsor, is required to establish a relationship with an FHLB Dallas member institution to submit an AHP application. The sponsor usually completes the application, while the member institution submits the sponsor’s application via an online process.
Apply today through the GrantConnect online portal on MyFHLB. To learn more about AHP at FHLB Dallas, please contact the Community Investment department at 800.362.2944.
Register to Access the AHP Online Application
An FHLB Dallas member must have a user ID and password to access the application through the AHP Online Application portal. If you are new or returning after an extended period, please refer to the AHP Online Registration Guide for registration assistance.
Once you have registered, log on to the system with your user ID and password during the application period. You may complete, submit and track the status of your application. Please take a moment to review the AHP Online Application Guide before starting your application.
Note: The member institution, sponsor and FHLB Dallas’ Community Investment department can view an application at the same time while it is being completed online.
Announcement of Funding
To be considered, members must submit all applications to FHLB Dallas prior to the AHP application deadline date. Once an application with supporting documentation has been received, FHLB Dallas staff will review the submission. Details about the AHP, including feasibility and scoring guidelines, are found within FHLB Dallas’ AHP Implementation Plan in the Helpful Resources below. Award announcements will be made in late October, and all applicants will be notified by U.S. mail at that time.
The AHP Application workbooks will provide you with a sample application along with additional information to assist you in the completion of your application. There is a separate workbook for owner-occupied housing projects and rental housing projects.
Request Timeline Extensions and Modifications to an Existing Application
The nature and scope of projects may change between the time the application is approved and the time the project is to be completed. To remain in compliance with AHP regulations found at 12 C.F.R. part 1291, in particular 12 C.F.R. § 1291.5(f), member institutions and sponsors must request approval of changes to the approved application from FHLB Dallas.
FHLB Dallas may only consider changes to projects provided that (1) the project, incorporating changes, would continue to meet the minimum eligibility requirements found at 12 C.F.R. § 1291.5(c); (2) the application for the project, as reflective of such changes, continues to score high enough to have been approved by FHLB Dallas and (3) there is good cause for the change.
