Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ office has unveiled the Atlanta Housing Affordability Tracker.

It’s a dashboard that will allow the public to track the city’s progress toward meeting the mayor’s affordable housing goals.

As WABE’s Maria White Tillman reports, the mayor promised to create or preserve 20,000 affordable homes by 2026. It’s part of her larger goal of investing $1 billion in affordable housing in Atlanta.

The dashboard is still in it’s beta or test form, but it includes information about city agency commitments over the past two years.

Future versions of the dashboard will also include details about private and philanthropic donations.
