Throughout the year,  Board members work closely with local, state and federal government officials, private developers, financial institutions and other nonprofit organizations to insure that affordable housing remains at the forefront of local, state and national legislative and regulatory agendas. As a 501(c)(3) organization, AHCMC is able to provide technical and advisory assistance and work closely with organizations in their efforts to provide affordable housing efficiently and effectively.
