$100,000 Matching Grant Bolsters GPR
In this tumultuous time of COVID and a significant economic crisis, affordable housing plays a key role in the stability of families and our cities. Grove Park Renewal provides high quality, affordable housing for families experiencing unemployment and educational upheaval and commits to keep these neighbors in their houses even as they scramble to pay rent during this time. The Grove Park neighborhood is simultaneously rapidly gentrifying, thereby increasing rents and displacing residents already in a precarious situation.
An anonymous Grove Park Renewal supporter saw the need of Grove Park residents and made a generous $100,000 matching grant to close the 2020 budget year in support of these families and long-term sustainable housing in Grove Park.
“In our fledgling state, we now manage and support nearly 250 people in 115 units of affordable housing on the Westside of Atlanta,” said Justin Bleeker, Executive Director of Grove Park Renewal. “This matching grant helps Grove Park Renewal grow in operational capacity to better serve our families, especially in this difficult time.”
Any donation will be matched up to a total of $100,000. The preferred method of giving is a pledge for regular monthly giving, which will be matched through 2021. Cash donations will be matched through the end of 2020.
For as little as $10 per month, Grove Park Renewal facilitates neighborhood events and opportunities for relationship connections.
For a donation of $200 per month, Grove Park Renewal connects residents to education, employment, mental health, and housing resources.
For a donation of $1,000 per month, Grove Park Renewal renovates current housing structures in Grove Park. Current needs include new flooring, bathroom renovations, and replacing HVAC systems.
