Allegheny Housing Development Fund (AHDF)

Allegheny Housing Development Fund (AHDF) financing is available to nonprofit and for-profit housing developers for the construction or renovation of affordable housing. As the amount of this funding is limited, you are encouraged to combine these funds with other capital to effectively leverage this source of financial backing.

  • Complete the AHDF application whether or not state or other funds are also being pursued.
  • Other applications may not be substituted for the AHDF application.
  • This application is not required if you are proposing housing development and a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is the sole source of funds you are requesting from Allegheny County. CDBG applications are accepted only once per year.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Submission of an application does NOT guarantee that funds will be awarded.
