Westside Future Fund (WFF) is grateful to Bank of America for naming our organization as one of its grant recipients. With an award of $22,000, we will continue our work to develop more quality affordable housing via our signature affordable housing program Home on the Westside. This program prioritizes legacy and future residents with live, work, and learn connections to the historic Westside. Its three service areas include single-family homeownership, rental housing, and property tax assistance for legacy residents.
As of 2023, WFF, and our Impact Fund, have enabled the creation and preservation of 646 completed multifamily units, 214 rental units, and another 121 units under development and scheduled for completion by 2025. We have also completed construction on and sold 35 homes and provided property tax assistance to 133 legacy residents to keep them in the historic Westside community.
As a place-based nonprofit advancing a compassionate approach to neighborhood revitalization, WFF understands that housing is critical to support a thriving community. A family that experiences housing insecurity can’t benefit from the amenities of any community, regardless of its resources.
“Partnering with WFF is vital to address affordable housing in Atlanta,” said Al McRae, president, Bank of America Atlanta. “These investments demonstrate our commitment to finding solutions and providing resources to help people succeed.”
