The NMTC has delivered over $1 billion in financing to 40 community development projects in Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District, represented by Civil Rights legend John Lewis. We thought we would take a moment and highlight a few.

This project consists of several components: new construction of a building which will allow CHRIS 180 to expand its behavioral health clinical training program; renovations at an existing drop-in facility to integrate primary medical and dental services; and the acquisition and rehabilitation of five houses which provide a supportive, therapeutic family environment for children while preparing for adoption.

Construction of a new 345,000 SF warehouse and distribution facility in EastPoint, GA. The expansion is projected to increase their distribution of food tolow income communities by 100%. The new facility is strategically located to improve logistics and supply chain management to meet the needs of individuals facing food insecurity in the 29 counties served.

Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership

John O’Callaghan, CEO of Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, saw the opportunity to leverage NMTC dollars as a path to providing a new way of revitalizing communities. “Now that the doors have been opened with New Markets, the plan is to transform neighborhoods through single family homeownership and prove it can be done at increased scale. Success will help ANDP, HPN members and other effective nonprofits to leverage and expand capital to transform more neighborhoods and help more families succeed.”

Moving in the Spirit – Space to Soar

The project involves acquisition and construction of a 21,500 square foot transit oriented development of a nonprofit arts organization. The facility (“Space to Soar”) will include a variety of spaces tailored to the programmatic needs of the organization. The project allows Moving in the Spirit to double its capacity to serve 500 youth annually through dance classes and workshops. Space to Soar also provides work space for human services agencies focused on workforce development training and placement.
