Affordable Housing Projects
The Athens Land Trust Affordable Housing Program addresses community needs by creating environmentally friendly housing that is permanently affordable for residents of Athens Clarke County. Since the Kennedy Ridge project in 1994, ALT has been protecting land in order to provide and preserve affordable housing. ALT has provided hundreds of residents affordable housing opportunities through 53 single family homes and 126 affordable rental units.
ALT is also an HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency that addresses the needs of low to moderate income residents who generally have difficulties purchasing a home due to credit barriers and lack of experience with the home buying process. ALT provides over 300 client services a year through homebuyer education, financial literacy education, and one-on-one counseling.
