/24s are available, and are the current minimum allocation. It is all but inconceivable that the long-term trend toward decrease in the minimum allocation size will continue, as existing allocations need to be subdivided further, to accommodate new users. In other words, the minimum allocation is /24 today, and it will be even smaller in the future.
"For multihomed end-users who demonstrate an intent to announce the requested space in a multihomed fashion to two or more distinct ASNs not owned or controlled by the end-user, the minimum block of IP address space assigned is a /24."
