More About The Georgia affordable Housing Coalition
The Georgia Affordable Housing Coalition is a trade association representing the multi-family affordable rental housing industry in Georgia. Since its inception in 1996, the Coalition has provided a forum for information sharing, networking and advocacy for its member developers, lenders, syndicators and other related parties who participate in the low income housing tax credit program.
The Coalition works to increase resources for affordable rental housing and monitors existing and pending legislation and public policy that affect the development and operation of affordable housing. The organization was instrumental in the passage of the low income housing tax credit legislation that created the Georgia state credit.
The Coalition actively participates in the review of the state’s annual Qualified Annual Plan and provides input to the GA Department of Community Affairs. Each spring, the Coalition holds an annual Members Only meeting in Atlanta, and in the fall, a large GA Affordable Housing Conference, open to anyone interested in affordable housing.
A 15 member Board of Directors sets policy for the Coalition. The Board of Directors receives policy recommendations from a Policy Committee. An Executive Director manages the day to day operations. The Coalition is a membership organization, supported by a host of sponsors committed to affordable housing. Members are invited to join one of several standing committees: a Management/Compliance Committee, a QAP-Technical Committee, a Government Relations Committee.
