Community Programs

We’re connecting our members and their partners with resources to support and strengthen communities.

Funds available to build desperately needed affordable housing, facilitate homeownership, or fuel economic development in underserved neighborhoods are persistently in very short supply.

Our members use our community program grants and discounted credit products to help:

  1. Create or preserve quality affordable housing for lower-income families and individuals, many with special needs
  2. Facilitate sustainable homeownership for low- to moderate-income families and individuals
  3. Deliver skill-building educational programs and life-enhancing social services to underserved communities
  4. Support innovative targeted jobs programs and entrepreneurship
  5. Give a boost to local nonprofits, seed or sustain small businesses, and advance community-based economic development objectives

Across Arizona, California, Nevada, and other regions where our members do business, our Community Program grants are making a difference. 

Unhoused veterans find both a stable place to live and a fellowship of vets at an AHP-assisted apartment complex in Carson City. An IDEA first-time homebuyer matching grant helps a family reclaim their dream of owning a home of their own after experiencing a foreclosure. And with a boost from a commercial kitchen funded by an AHEAD economic development grant, an ancestral foods entrepreneur focused on health grows her business in Phoenix.
