The Federation of Neighborhoods presents "Affordable Housing in Athens?" a free public forum on Monday, March 18 from 7:30-9:00pm in Ciné Lab Space. Listen and ask questions of panelists about issues surrounding affordable housing and understand more what it is and is not.
Athens-Clarke County enjoys healthy economic growth and a national reputation as a desirable place to live, retire, or study. Yet poverty rates are sky high in ACC and many people are not enjoying participation in the dream of having an affordable home. A panel of citizens, local officials and NGO leaders will address questions such as:
What IS affordable housing? Where is it in ACC? What are the types of affordable housing? How is it funded? Where is it NOT, in ACC? Where was it removed to make way for other development? Who needs affordable housing OR what are the demographics of affordable housing need in ACC? Will the SPLOST 2020 funding initiative address affordable housing needs in ACC?
