The Atlanta BeltLine, in conjunction with Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, is offering two programs to assist with affordable housing within a 0.5 mile radius along the Atlanta BeltLine.
One program is focused on downpayment assistance of up to $45,000 for new home buyers and is available along the entire BeltLine corridor, while the other program is focused on assisting existing homeowners with up to $25,000 in renovation funding and is available only along the Westside Trail. Households must earn under 80% of HUDS’s Area Median Income to qualify.
The 2015 program is limited to 25 houses – 15 of which will be allocated towards downpayment assistance and 10of which will be allocated towards renovation funding.
Downpayment assistance recipients can additionally “bundle up” with other downpayment assistance programs!

Westview received love from online real estate and neighborhood news outlet, Curbed, two days in a row!
The first article, published on June 5, 2014, titled “Historic Westview Exhibits Symptoms Of Beltline Fever,” shines a light on all the activities members of the Westview Community Organization are making happen in our beloved intown Atlanta neighborhood. Author Josh Green highlights our $40 homestead property taxes and multitude of available houses under $200k while pointing to the imminent construction of the Westside BeltLine trail (which comes straight through Westview).
In the second article, published on June 6, 2014, and titled “For Now, These Homes Near The Beltline Ask Less Than $200K,” author Kimberly Turner broadens the focus by not only highlighting Westview, but also a few nearby neighborhoods. The article showcases some of the affordable inventory available in southwest Atlanta and compares the quality to that of the much more pricey Eastside neighborhoods.
Thank you for the recognition, Curbed! We hope this will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Westview and Curbed.
