Why Does the Atlanta Urban Development Corporation Exist?
In pursuit of building and preserving 20,000 units of affordable housing by 2030, the City of Atlanta has enhanced these efforts in collaboration with the Atlanta Housing Authority to establish the Atlanta Urban Development Corporation (AUDC). Working from a close partnership between Atlanta Housing, Invest Atlanta, the City, and other public partners, the AUDC will increase the collective capacity of public land development and complement the housing development efforts of those agencies participating in the Housing Strike Force.
