The Atlanta Housing Affordability Tracker provides a snapshot of progress made in reaching the goals of (1) creating or preserving 20,000 affordable homes by 2026 and increase overall supply and (2) investing $500 million from City-controlled public sources in the production and preservation of affordable housing as part of the larger goal of investing $1 billion (the other $500 million coming from private and philanthropic sources). The dashboard represents the collaborative efforts of the City of Atlanta, Invest Atlanta, Atlanta Housing, Atlanta Beltline, Inc., and Fulton County/City of Atlanta Land Bank Authority.
The data represented in the dashboard reflects City agency commitments made between January 2018-December 2019 and will be updated on a quarterly basis.
