Westside Future Fund launches new $55 million funding goal to create more affordable housing
A local nonprofit that’s working to revitalize and develop historic neighborhoods on Atlanta’s Westside is boosting its efforts to create more affordable housing options by 2028.
The Westside Future Fund is launching Our Next Chapter, a new $55 million funding goal that will allow the nonprofit to finance at least 285 multifamily units, 225 single-family homes and support the nonprofit’s Anti-Displacement Tax Fund.
On Tuesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” John Ahmann, the president and CEO of Westside Future Fund (WFF) and Dr. Beverly Tatum, the current board chair for WFF and former president of Spelman College, discuss the new initiative.
The guests also talk about efforts to increase homeownership and build community trust.
