Affordable Housing

Ensuring Homes are Available to All

Access to equitable and inclusive housing opportunities is a cornerstone of the Atlanta Beltline vision. We're committed to creating or preserving 5,600 affordable housing units to allow residents of all income levels to share in the benefits and enhanced quality of life offered by the Beltline.
