How to Complete the AHP Application

HCD encourages applicants review the Affordable Housing Program (AHP) application training materials, including the AHP Application User Guide and AHP Training Videos before starting your application. Please review the AHP Implementation Plan (IP) as the IP is the policy document that guides the program and sets the expectations for applicants. Exhibit C of the IP includes the optional scoring commitments which merit points in the competitive AHP application. Commit to criteria for scoring consideration in the AHP Online application.

  • Start the application process early to provide time for TA
  • HCD can review your in-process application, if requested.
  • HCD is not responsible for applicants missing scoring opportunities
  • Once submitted by the sponsor, TA for the application is no longer available
