Technical Assistance:Application and Resources

FAQ's

I have self scored my project, how competitive is my project?

The AHP funding round is a competitive scoring process, in which applications compete with other rental and homeownership applications. Therefore, it is impossible to predict how competitive your project is as each funding round is different. Below are results from the last three years.

Funding Round $ Available (Million) # of Projects Awarded Scoring Range
2021 $40.0 67 74.520193 - 62.067851
2020 $41.3 63 76.272726 - 62.181817
2019 $51.5 85 76.181818 - 59.228499

How much funding is available in the 2022 AHP round?

Currently, we do not know how much will be available in the 2022 AHP funding round. We will have a better idea in the third quarter of the calendar year.

What if I forget to request scoring points in a specific priority?

You have until the member approves/submits your application to the Bank to make changes. Once the member approves your application, you are no longer able to make changes or request additional scoring points, even if your project meets the scoring criteria.

Can I apply for AHP funding with more than one Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank)?

FHLB Des Moines allows AHP awards from different FHLBanks as long as each AHP award is listed as a separate funding source on the Sources of Funds. However, each FHLBank has its own program requirements. Check with the Bank with which you intend to apply.
