FHLB Cincinnati Roundtable: How to Successfully Secure an AHP Grant

Join FHLB Cincinnati representatives for an interactive discussion on the key elements in securing an AHP grant. We will talk about common features of successful AHP applications, mistakes to avoid, and post-grant award expectations. If you have secured an AHP grant, or applied but did not receive an award, come share your stories and compare notes with FHLB. The result could be a successful AHP application for your next project.
