Atlanta Proposes Affordable Housing Action Plan


credit:

A City of Atlanta Housing Affordability Plan was recently unveiled by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. The Plan was a collaborative effort that acts as a roadmap to increase the number of residents who can afford housing costs.

Several nonprofits, city agencies, philanthropic organizations, private companies, educational institutions, faith-based groups, residents, and community members came together to create the Plan roadmap under the banner of House ATL to develop recommendations.

The Plan is based on four key goals that include 13 initiatives. These four goals are to: create or preserve 20,000 affordable homes by 2026 and increase overall supply; invest $1 billion from public, private, and philanthropic sources in the production and preservation of affordable housing; ensure equitable growth for all Atlanta residents and minimize displacement; and support innovation and streamline processes.

The Plan includes 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits from Georgia Department of Community Affairs and Tax-Exempt Bonds and Housing Opportunity Bonds from Invest Atlanta. The first mortgage financing is provided by Red Capital while the Federal and State equity investor is RBC Bank. Read the Entire Article
