About ANDP

The Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. (ANDP) is a 28 year-old affordable housing nonprofit located in downtown Atlanta. Our mission is to promote, create and preserve mixed income communities through direct development, lending, policy research and advocacy that result in the equitable distribution of affordable housing throughout the metropolitan Atlanta region. Since its inception, ANDP has supported the creation of more than 11,000 units of housing for people of low to moderate incomes and has grown its footprint from the City of Atlanta to the wider ten-county metro Atlanta region. In pursuit of its mission, ANDP serves three key roles: Housing Development (Single-Family and Multi-Family), Housing Finance, and Policy and Community Engagement. ANDP is a proud member of the Housing Partnership Network and a chartered member of NeighborWorks America.

In 2009 ANDP launched its Foreclosure Redevelopment program and has acquired and rehabilitated over 500 single family scattered-site properties. It has also grown its multifamily ownership and private partnerships from 1 property to 5 properties with 2 additional projects under development.  These efforts have impacted metro Atlanta communities that were hit hard by the foreclosure crisis and its lingering impacts, including underwater neighborhoods where outstanding mortgage balances significantly exceed property values.
