Today, 十大外围app (WFF) launched the application process for its 西区的家 程序 as part of its commitment to community retention. 西区的家 has been developed to ensure that current residents can benefit from revitalization efforts in the Historic Westside community. Priority for these for-sale and rental residences, 由WFF组装的财产, is for families with historic connections to the neighborhoods.
The WFF board of directors adopted community retention guidelines for families living within WFF’s geographic footprint, 哪条街和英吉利大街相连, 葡萄树的城市, Ashview山庄, 亚特兰大大学中心, Booker T. 华盛顿和Just Us社区. Applications from residents in these neighborhoods will receive highest priority for 西区的家 属性, 其次是在社区工作的人, 那些从前住在那里的人, 在亚特兰大的华盛顿集群学校, and households that currently spend 50% or more of their net income on housing.
通过 西区的家 WFF announced that it has acquired more than 80 vacant lots and abandoned homes and more than 200 multi-family rental units. 综合 西区的家 程序 is in alignment with the Westside Land Use Framework plan. Development of the 属性 will occur in phases, with the renovation of approximately 20 single family homes and 80 apartment units to begin in late 2019 with occupancy slated for mid-2020. The timeline partially depends on the speed of permitting, the adoption of a new zoning ordinance by the Atlanta City Council, and the pool of interested and qualified residents.
交付质量, affordable housing is one of the four impact strategies for WFF, 还有安全和保障, cradle-to-career educational opportunities and community health and wellness.
“一个亚特兰大: 房屋负担能力行动计划 outlines a pathway to affordable and equitable housing opportunities for all who desire to call Atlanta home. 西区未来基金的"西区的家" represents a powerful example of the power of public-private partnerships to deliver housing affordability,市长凯莎·兰斯·巴顿斯说. “The fruits of this thoughtful and intentional planning, 将不同的利益相关者聚集在一起, will result in a city w在这里 all residents—regardless of their income, background or status—can thrive as Atlanta continues to attract development.”
The 属性 acquired by the 十大外围app were purchased through a combination of philanthropic donations, 影响来自社区意识投资者的资本, and in-kind contributions from the City of Atlanta. 到目前为止, WFF已经收到了600万美元的免费土地, vacant buildings and 首页Flex rental assistance from Invest Atlanta and Atlanta Housing. Other partners advancing the initiative include the Fulton County Land Bank Authority, 亚特兰大警方基金会, 在崛起的金融中心, 180年克里斯, 以及探索社区发展组织.
迈克尔·朱利安·邦德, Atlanta City-Councilman at-large and a longtime supporter of the Historic Westside, 说, “这 announcement marks the beginning of a transformation that I’ve dreamed about for many years,”他说. “这 is my childhood neighborhood—a place that once again can inspire promise and possibilities to a new generation. The momentum behind this effort makes me extremely proud of my city and very hopeful for its future.”
District 3 Councilman Antonio Brown 说 he has a unique appreciation for the community retention issues that 十大外围app is trying to address with 西区的家. “Most residents in this district are dealing with rapidly climbing rental rates that threaten their ability to stay w在这里 they’ve lived for years. 这 西区的家 程序, along with the Anti-Displacement Tax Fund for legacy homeowners, is helping to restore trust and hope to people who have long felt under-appreciated and overlooked.”
The growing popularity of intown living has made Atlanta’s Westside a desirable acquisition target for real estate speculators whose interests have driven up land values and associated rental rates. Many of the legacy residents in these communities have not had comparable wage increases, 所以他们很难呆在自己的家里, 更不用说在这个地区买个新的了. 崛起的金融十大外围足彩网站app中心, WFF的影响力合作伙伴之一, provides individualized financial literacy training and resources to prepare Historic Westside residents to reverse that trend.
“Our mission aligns perfectly with the WFF mission,安娜·富特说, 《十大外围app》的东南地区主管. “It’s gratifying to help families with limited resources gain the tools they need to work toward the dream of home ownership. We look forward to supporting families on the Historic Westside to help them become first-time homeowners.”
申请 西区的家 can be requested three ways: in-person at the WFF Leasing Office: 515 Rhodes Street NW (the former Villas at the Dome location); by calling 470.377.1696或通过电子邮件home@jamesmosslocks.com.
“Opening up the application process today is exciting, as it shows us leaning into our goal of community retention and stability,阿曼说, WFF的总裁兼首席执行官. “From the hard-working residents earning minimum wage to the fixed-income retired residents to the nurses or police officers who want to live close to work—this 程序 provides quality affordable housing for all of them near newly developed assets like Cook Park and Katherine Johnston Memorial Park.”
