Dear Member and Housing Sponsor,
Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston is hosting several free online Affordable Housing Program (AHP) application webinars to help members and sponsors apply for AHP funding in 2020. These webinars begin on May 19 and run through July 8 and are a critical tool to assist you in preparation of your AHP application.
To learn more and register for one of these trainings, please visit our events page.
Reminder: The online AHP application opens on June 8. Applications are due from housing sponsors on July 30.
Additional 2020 AHP application information and required templates are available on our website.
The Senate voted 92-6 today, August 1, to approve its fiscal year (FY) 2019 Transportation-HUD (THUD) spending bill, which provides robust funding for affordable housing and community development programs.
For more information on the Senate bill and the FY19 funding process, see NLIHC’s analysis of the bill and join a webinar hosted by NLIHC and the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) on August 6 at 2:00 pm ET. Register for the webinar here.
Several amendments impacting federal affordable housing programs were added to the Senate spending bill, including:
Most of the amendments NLIHC opposed – including one from Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) to prohibit HUD from implementing its Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule – were not adopted.
Congressional leaders are expected to negotiate a final spending bill later this year. This gives advocates an opportunity to continue to engage their senators and representatives to ensure the highest funding possible for affordable housing programs.
"We are redefining what it means to make the case for systems change and in so doing, building the public and political will needed to transform communities for the better." Dr. Tiffany Manuel, President & CEO, The Case Made
Massachusetts Housing Partnership and CHAPA’s Municipal Engagement Initiative are proud to announce our collaboration with Dr. Tiffany Manuel, President and CEO of The Case Made, to change the narrative around affordable housing in our communities. Dr. Manuel is a national expert who has helped advocates across the country make positive changes in their communities. Read more about Dr. Manuel on her website.
Co-sponsored by Mel King Institute, this session will be an interactive forum. Dr. Manuel will present her findings on how to reframe the housing crisis and provide a blueprint for communities looking to change the narrative. Her presentation will be followed by a 1-hour interactive break-out strategy session for participants to begin to develop their own unique strategies.
$25.00 for CHAPA members and $40.00 for non-members. No refunds will be provided to those who register but do not attend the forum. View our membership page for more details on the benefits of becoming a CHAPA member.
Guests must be registered by February 18th and must bring a photo ID. 100 High Street is located a five minute walk from South Station and close to the State Street and Downtown Crossing MBTA stops. There is a nearby parking garage with more information here.
Registration and refreshments open at 9:00 a.m. The speaking program will begin at 9:30 a.m. A light breakfast will be provided.
