A new initiative has been unveiled to strengthen affordable housing opportunities in the City of Atlanta to help low income residents avoid displacement. The initiative includes three unique Heritage Owner-Occupied Rehab (OOR) programs –  which provide forgivable loans to residents to make critical health and safety repairs on their homes. The program is being implemented by Invest Atlanta with support from the Atlanta Housing Authority and Choice Atlanta. The initiative is geared toward seniors, veterans, disabled heads of households, and families who have lived in their homes for at least five years, with a special focus on Westside neighborhoods like Vine City, English Avenue and portions of Castleberry Hill as well as Ashview Heights and the Atlanta University Center area. Information about the Heritage Owner-Occupied Rehab programs can be found at investatlanta.com/owneroccupiedrehab.
