Putting Down Roots
Our first project in the Southeast was a Market Value Analysis for New Orleans five years ago. In 2017, we opened a permanent office in Atlanta to provide a launch pad for stronger partnerships and deeper investment in the region.
Atlanta is also home to our Equity ATL Collaborative, a partnership with Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. (ANDP) and Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs (ACE) that is supported by JPMorgan Chase through its PRO Neighborhoods initiative. The initiative promotes equitable, mixed-income communities and rebuilds residential and commercial markets in low-income urban and suburban neighborhoods across the Atlanta metro through complementary investments in high-quality, affordable housing and local businesses.
Immediate and Lasting Impact
Our work in the Southeast includes lending to a range of sectors including affordable housing development, early childhood education, adaptive reuse projects, healthy food access projects and K-12 education facilities.
We also offer the full breadth of our policy solutions services from the market value analysis that looks at residential real estate data to inform community revitalization and manage neighborhood change to early childhood education analytics designed to help cities identify gaps in access.
Across the region, Reinvestment Fund has established partnerships with a range of stakeholders to engage deeply in the places we invest. From city governments to neighborhood organizations, big banks to fellow CDFIs, and national foundations to local leaders, we coordinate impactful partnerships that revitalize communities so that residents can thrive.
