AHAC Nominations Due Friday, Feb. 23, 2018
January 26, 2018
FHLBank Topeka’s Affordable Housing Program sets aside funds each year for member institutions to use in financing affordable housing for low- and moderate-income households in their communities in partnership with public and private local housing development organizations. The Affordable Housing Advisory Council (AHAC) was created in 1989 to meet with representatives of FHLBank Topeka’s board of directors and advise FHLBank on low- and moderate-income housing needs and programs in FHLBank’s district (Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma).
FHLBank Topeka’s AHAC is comprised of 12 individuals. All AHAC members must reside in FHLBank Topeka’s district and must be from community and nonprofit organizations that are actively involved in providing or promoting low- and moderate-income housing or community lending in FHLBank Topeka’s district. Employees of FHLBank Topeka’s members are not eligible to serve on the AHAC. Consistent with the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s regulation on Minority and Women Inclusion, FHLBank Topeka encourages the consideration of diversity in nominating individuals for positions on its AHAC.
AHAC members are reimbursed for all travel and associated expenses incurred for attending AHAC meetings and receive a $250 stipend for each meeting attended. Nominees must be willing to commit two to two and one-half days to travel to designated locations at least once each quarter during the year to attend meetings of the AHAC. Meetings are generally held during the second or third week of March, June, September and December.
Due to the resignation of Jane C. Harrington, there is one open seat in Colorado for which we are now accepting nominations. The individual selected will complete the term that began Jan. 1, 2018, and ends Dec. 31, 2020, and will be eligible to serve three more three-year terms.
Please complete and submit the nomination form and a resume for individuals you believe meet the qualifications to represent Colorado on FHLBank Topeka’s AHAC by Friday, February 23, 2018. The form may be submitted by email, mail or fax.
