The Atlanta Regional Housing Forum is a quarterly gathering of affordable housing stakeholders from all sectors - private, public, nonprofit, philanthropic, and concerned citizens. The Atlanta Regional Housing Forum was founded more than 35 years ago by Bill Bolling, the founder, past president, and CEO of the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
At each quarterly Forum, housing stakeholders gather to discuss affordable housing, community development, transportation, transit, homelessness, health, and other related topics.
The Forum also examines housing policies, best practices, ongoing collaborations and initiatives, and the need for more subsidies in affordable housing development throughout metro Atlanta.
Our primary objective is to provide educational events that inspire action in advocates and concerned citizens to increase the region’s ability to produce more affordable housing.
The Forum is produced by a Steering Committee and guided by an Advisory Council - representing more than 30 local, regional, and state organizations. Forum events are staffed by its organizational hosts, Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. (ANDP).
