Westside TAD Downtown Façade Improvement Grant and Community Improvement Fund Guidelines and Application

Invest Atlanta intends to utilize available Westside TAD tax increment to provide gap financing for real estate and community development projects in the Westside TAD. Invest Atlanta invites qualified developers, property owners, business owners and community development organizations seeking to develop catalytic real estate projects and/or improve eligible property within the Westside TAD to apply for grant funding from one of three primary programs:

NOTE: Due to the volume of current and pipeline projects and funding availability, as of October 17, 2017 we will no longer be accepting Westside TAD Community Improvement Fund applications until further notice.

Community Builders Program

Community Builders was created in response to growing interest among many residents, business owners and service providers in the Westside neighborhoods of English Avenue, Vine City and portions of Castleberry Hill, to learn how to redevelop vacant, abandoned and blighted commercial and multi-family properties. Community Builders will train Westside stakeholders in core property redevelopment skills. Participants of the program will be selected by the program’s managing team at Invest Atlanta. Participants who complete the program successfully will be eligible to apply to Invest Atlanta for funding assistance to support their redevelopment project.
