02: Affordable Housing Project

Project Statement

This project will provide funding support for a range of affordable, public, or workforce housing sub-project options in Athens-Clarke County (collectively referred to as “affordable housing”), including, but not limited to, multi-family and single-family developments or redevelopments, which may include associated commercial and retail components of  mixed use developments.  Depending upon costs and funding availability, such options may include, but not be limited to, ACCGov ownership of affordable housing; construction of public infrastructure (e.g., public roads, public sidewalks, water lines, sewer lines, and stormwater facilities) to support such housing options; and partnerships with affordable housing providers and investors, public and private, for development and redevelopment of affordable housing, including mixed-income, mixed-use developments or redevelopments that may include affordable or public multi-family rental units and home ownership opportunities.  To the extent allowed by law, measures to limit the displacement of existing residents may be considered by the Mayor and Commission when considering available options hereunder. Additionally, to the extent allowed by law, funds may be used as matching funds for leveraging grant opportunities.
