FHLBank Atlanta will award the funds as part of its 2008 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) offering. Local community developers, in partnership with FHLBank Atlanta member institutions, will use the awards to fund three affordable housing developments in Garrett County, as well as the cities of Baltimore and Oakland.
"Our partnerships provide tangible economic benefits to the communities we serve by stimulating the local economy with affordable housing options and employment opportunities," said Arthur Fleming, first vice president and director of Community Investment Services, FHLBank Atlanta.
AHP is a competitive funding program that helps develop owner-occupied and rental housing for very low-, low-, and moderate-income families. FHLBank Atlanta awards the funds annually to member financial institutions and their community housing partners. AHP is a component of FHLBank Atlanta's affordable housing, economic development, and down-payment assistance initiatives. For the complete list of AHP winners, visit www.fhlbatl.com/ahp.
