New $750,000 investment to protect affordable housing for Atlanta legacy residents who live along the BeltLine
Rob Brawner, the executive director of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, says homes along the Atlanta BeltLine are some of the fast appreciation values in the country and oftentimes low-income households don’t benefit from the increase.
But that could all change thanks to a new partnership between the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, the Rocket Community Fund, and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership.
On Wednesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Brawner, and Rob Lockett, the National Housing Stability Leader for Rocket Community Fund, talked to program host Rose Scott about how the $750,000 investment will preserve and protect affordable housing for Atlanta legacy residents who live along the BeltLine through the Legacy Resident Retention Program and property tax assistance.
The initiative also aims to close the homeownership gap by preserving 2,000 units of affordable housing by 2025.
