ACC accepting proposals to preserve and expand affordable housing stock

In an effort to address lack of affordable housing for low-income Athens-Clarke County residents, ACCGov is now accepting proposals from organizations seeking American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to preserve and create new affordable housing via home repairs and/or down payment assistance for prospective homeowners. Public or private non-profit entities are invited to submit applications through 4 o.m. On Sept. 1.

This program stems from a recommendation from the Athens Justice and Memory Project to help address financial losses created by urban renewal and to reinvest in historically underserved neighborhoods in Athens-Clarke County.

About the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)

In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) established the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) to provide state, local, and Tribal governments with the resources needed to respond to the pandemic and its economic effects and to build a stronger, more equitable economy during the recovery.

ARPA allocated $57.6 million to the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government. Funds may be used for costs incurred beginning on March 3, 2021 and must be allocated by December 31, 2024. The final rule provides that the period of performance will run until December 31, 2026. 

On March 1, 2022, the Mayor & Commission authorized the allocation of ARPA funds for specific uses and designated program areas ("buckets") including Youth Development and Violence Prevention, Affordable Housing, Homelessness, Business Development and Workforce Support, and Behavioral Health.

Athens area Habitat has already received over $10 million from our taxpayer dollars . But Spencer Frye says that's not enough. He says he needs $15 million to build 40 houses that he will sale for $160,000 each.

That's another $6400,000. Add that to the 15 million and the cost is 21million 400 thousand dollars. To build 40 low income houses.

That's $535,000 per house !!!

I think we can find some pretty nice houses for that kind of money without giving it to a State House of Representative that according to Habitat International handbook, should not be running their nonprofit.(because of conflict of interest )

Also, State House ethics rules say he should recuse himself from voting on housin…


Just wow.


Hmmmm..... ain't UGA trying to get rid of some big ole house they don't need any more? Sounds like a marriage.

En réponse à

It’s 4 million dollars more than the grant they will receive. It would Only house 15-20 people and we need housing for thousands.
