COMMUNITY IMPACT

Construction of a new 345,000 sq. ft. warehouse and distribution facility in East Point, GA. The expansion is projected to increase their distribution of food to low income communities by 100%. + Construction and equipping of food bank headquarters and distribution facility serving the metro Atlanta and North Georgia region. The new facility will nearly double the space available allowing the organization to double its annual distribution within 5 years. 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.

Voices from the Community

The NMTC program is the best example of a public-private partnership. It provides financial incentive and benefit to investors while serving communities that would otherwise never receive these investments. It creates jobs, which stabilizes and improves communities thereby reducing the burden of public assistance in areas without options. It provides benefit to constituents who value public social programs and to those who value self-sufficiency. There are not many programs – or topics – that can have that level of appeal to all interested parties. The program is a win-win-win. It helps America to grow and thrive.
