Accepting applications for 2019 Anti-Displacement Tax Fund program through June 1, 2019

Westside Future Fund (WFF) just completed the first full cycle of its innovative Anti- Displacement Tax Fund (ADTF) program with its first payments being made on Sept. 21. More than 93 homeowners have been approved for the ADTF program this year.

The ADTF program was put in place to prevent the displacement of legacy homeowners in the English Avenue, Vine City, Atlanta University Center, Ashview Heights, Just Us and Historic Booker T. Washington neighborhoods due to increases in property taxes.

The ADTF program pays for increases in homeowners’ existing property tax bills for up to 20 years. The program operates as a grant to individuals and does not require participants to pay back any funds.

As part of its mission to ensure that current residents can stay in their communities for generations to come, WFF is providing all funding for the program, sourced from philanthropic contributions.

WFF is accepting applications for the 2019 tax cycle through June 1, 2019. Applicants must meet specific income and residency requirements as well as live in English Avenue, Vine City, Atlanta University Center, Ashview Heights, Just Us and Historic Booker T. Washington neighborhoods. For details on the ADTF program, please:
