Affordable Housing Program
Helping to bring new or rehabilitated housing stock to completion by working with local partners.
Created by Congress in 1989, FHLBank Pittsburgh's Affordable Housing Program (AHP) allows project sponsors - with assistance from FHLBank member financial institutions - to submit grant proposals to obtain much-needed gap funding for qualifying affordable housing projects serving low- to moderate-income individuals and families. These grant applications are scored competitively during one or more funding rounds each year, providing tens of millions of dollars in grants across FHLBank's district to date.

Banking On Business
Designed to help eligible small businesses with start-up and expansion.
Banks are sometimes unable to lend money to small businesses — especially start-ups — that lack sufficient equity or cash flow. But with FHLBank Pittsburgh's Banking On Business (BOB) program to make these deals more bankable, financial institutions are more willing to provide loans. Delivered through member financial institutions, BOB funding helps eligible small businesses with start-up and expansion.
