Metro Atlanta’s Affordable Housing Sector: Impact and Response to COVID-19


Just as a choir of voices had begun pushing new resources for affordable housing forward in our region, the COVID-19 pandemic has dulled our momentum. Unlike the real estate and financial crisis that became the Great Recession, this situation unfolded very quickly. Will the recovery come so quickly?

How are the mortgage markets reacting? What will this mean for ongoing developments and those seeking capital? What will the post-coronavirus environment look like for the affordable housing movement? Will there be an unexpected opportunity to establish policies designed to produce more equitable outcomes for low-income households?​

At the upcoming Atlanta Regional Housing Forum, moderator Bill Bolling will speak with several sector and industry leaders to understand the extent of the damage and ask how we are rapidly pivoting to recovery. We’ll hear from experts on residential mortgage markets, government intervention, affordable housing development, vulnerable populations, and more.​

Join us online Wednesday, June 10 at 9:30 a.m. for the upcoming Atlanta Regional Housing Forum. This virtual forum will be broadcast live on the Internet. The link to the live event will be emailed to registrants and posted on www.AtlantaRegionalHousingForum.org.
