Housing Solutions Lab

Helping cities plan, launch, and evaluate equitable housing policies

Atlanta

Atlanta skyline With support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Atlanta was a part of the Housing Solutions Lab’s Large City Peer Network. The Network brought housing officials and leaders from 10 cities together to share information about how they were responding to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and associated housing challenges.

Atlanta was also a participant in the Local Housing Solutions Institute, an intensive program of seminars, strategic consultation, and team-building designed to help cities and counties refine and strengthen their housing strategies. With funding from the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, LHSI participants convened for a weeklong in-person retreat in 2019.
