In 2019 AHCOPA created a Community Revitalization Award competition to recognize the top lender and realtor partners in their advancement of first-time homeownership for low and moderate-income household.  This is a voluntary, friendly competition where banks and real estate agents were evaluated on their performance based on the following metrics:

  • Having their client access counseling services with AHCOPA
  • Enabling their client to access down payment assistance
  • Having the client be approved for a low down payment, conventional loan product
  • Closing on a home that was sold for less than $100,000
  • Having the borrow be a person of color.
