About

Launched in 2004, The Initiative grew out of Georgia’s experience with the National League of Cities’ Affordable Housing Program and the success stories that were celebrated at the annual Magnolia Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing. Since 2005, seventy-six communities have directly benefited from the program.
