The Alabama Housing Finance Authority (AHFA) was created in 1980 by Act No. 80-585 of the Alabama Legislature. AHFA is a public corporation and instrumentality of the State of Alabama dedicated to serving the housing needs of low- and moderate-income Alabamians. AHFA creates housing opportunities through the affordable financing of single- and multifamily housing.
Since 1980, AHFA has helped more than 70,000 Alabamians purchase a home and provided funding for more than 48,000 rental housing units — serving as Alabama’s affordable housing resource.
Through its single-family financing programs, AHFA offers affordable interest rates and entry cost assistance on 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage loans.
In addition, AHFA purchases mortgage loans from Alabama Habitat for Humanity affiliates, allowing them to continue building efforts while AHFA receives mortgagors' monthly payments for the life of the loan.
ServiSolutions® is the mortgage servicing division of AHFA, and the largest mortgage loan servicer located in Alabama. In addition to the loans funded by AHFA, ServiSolutions services loans for housing finance agencies in Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Washington as well as community banks in Alabama.
ServiSolutions services many different types of mortgages including FHA, VA, Rural Development, conventional uninsured and conventional insured loans. In addition, ServiSolutions services second mortgages, fully amortizing as well as deferred.
AHFA’s multifamily programs help developers build or rehabilitate housing, thereby creating affordable rental properties for Alabama’s low-income families. These financial incentives encourage developers to increase the supply of rental housing for economically disadvantaged families.
