Funding Process

All eligible members may access AHP funds for their approved programs or for approved projects initiated by project sponsors, such as nonprofit organizations, state or local governments and for-profit developers.

Funds are disbursed as a direct grant to the member institution involved in the application. The member, in turn, provides the AHP grant funds to the sponsor. The manuals below contain information on the funding process, forms to submit for a funding request and helpful calculation tools.
