Are you aware of the multiple opportunities for down payment assistance in the city of Atlanta? Here are just a few:
Cleta Winslow, our City Councilperson, Invest Atlanta and developer Jerome Russell will sponsor a series of housing and down-payment workshops and bus tours to help potential home buyers find available homes in Atlanta. The first workshop and tour will take place on Saturday, Feb. 18 from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Participants are asked to meet at Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Avenue SW, in the City Council Chambers on the second floor at 8:30 a.m. Registration is required. Residents can call (404) 330-6047 to register.
Wells Fargo has started a program called “NeighborhoodLIFT”. The event has already happened in Atlanta, but the money is still out there to be used.
Last, there is downpayment assistance through the Beltline’s Affordable Housing program. This affects houses in the Beltline Tax Allocation District, which covers some houses along Allene Ave and other areas in Adair Park.
Some of these programs can be used in conjunction. Do some online research, there are many opportunities out there!
