In 2015, Atlanta Housing, in partnership with the city of Atlanta, received $30 million in funding through the Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant (CNIG). This grant, awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through its signature revitalization initiative, Choice Neighborhoods, supports efforts to revitalize the former University Homes public housing site and three residential neighborhoods: Atlanta University Center (AUC), Ashview Heights, and Vine City. These neighborhoods collectively are known as the University Choice Neighborhood. In alignment with HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods program, Choice Atlanta focuses efforts on three core goals: Housing, People, and Neighborhood.
