About Us

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 30 years ago by Bill Bolling, the founder and past president and CEO of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. During this time housing stakeholders have gathered quarterly to discuss affordable housing, community development, transportation, transit, homelessness, health and other related topics. 

We will also examine issues such as outdated zoning practices, overly narrow funding models, counterproductive density regulations and a general lack of information all impact the region’s ability to deliver housing necessary for continued economic growth of the region.

The Forum is a collaborative effort of more than 20 organizations. The effort staffed by Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. (ANDP)
