The Legacy Resident Retention Program (LRRP) is a resource for Atlanta BeltLine homeowners in subareas 1, 2, 9, and 10 (see neighborhoods listed in eligibility section) who lived in their homes before March 2017. LRRP assists homeowners with rising property taxes to mitigate gentrification displacement risk for long-term neighborhood residents by paying the property tax increases through the tax year 2030. The LRRP operates as a grant and does not require participants to pay back any funds received.
More than eight out of 10 Americans believe a home is the best long-term investment, and the LRRP can help preserve generational wealth. As one of our priorities to ensure that current residents can stay in their communities, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP) and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) are partnering to support homeowners most vulnerable to gentrification and displacement. ABP provides all funding for the program, sourced from philanthropic contributions.
