Haven @ South Atlanta RecommendationsFinancial Recommendations FCS should partner w/ a low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) developer.Examples: Tristar- Great wrap around services model for families Integral- Extensive knowledge of the community Columbia Residential- Current projects within the South Atlanta market FCS should apply through COA or DCA for HOME funds FCS should apply to Invest Atlanta’s Housing Opportunity Loan Program FCS should apply to the Atlanta Housing Authority (AHA) Homeflex or otherrental income subsidy programs.

Haven @ South Atlanta RecommendationsCommunity Recommendations FCS should partner with Purpose Built and YMCA to collaborate and shareresources in order to offer amenities to new residents FCS should form a partnership with the YMCA to expand their Preschooland Pre-K program for the community FCS should provide community space and public amenities for theneighborhoodDesign Recommendation FCS should try to preserve the character of the community and focus onlow to moderate density of the site. The small multifamily homes (“bighomes”) are ideal size.
