ANDP Loan Fund

ANDP Loan Fund:  Building the Region’s Future, Neighborhood by Neighborhood

Established in 1991 and officially certified in 1998 as a U.S. Treasury certified Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI), the ANDP Loan Fund provides financing to nonprofit and for-profit housing developers that create affordable housing, mixed income and mixed use properties. Since its founding, the ANDP Loan Fund has provided $40 million in loans toward projects valued at nearly $315 million ultimately supporting the creation of 5,309 units of housing.

Although the ANDP Loan Fund serves the entire ten-county metro Atlanta region, we prioritize high-risk areas where the foreclosure crisis was severe and where a majority of homeowners remain underwater on their mortgages.

CDFIs are mission-driven, financial institutions that are dedicated to providing financial services to meet the community development needs of underserved communities. While CDFIs share a common mission, they have a variety of structures and development lending goals. There are six basic types of CDFIs: community development banks, community development loan funds, community development credit unions, microenterprise funds, community development corporation-based lenders and investors, and community development venture funds. The ANDP Loan Fund operates as a community development loan fund that specializes in deploying capital for affordable housing, mixed income and mixed use projects throughout metropolitan Atlanta.

The ANDP Loan Fund was previously known as the “Community Redevelopment Loan & Investment Fund (CRLIF).”

The ANDP Loan Fund’s products and services are geared towards nonprofit and mission driven for-profit affordable and mixed income housing developers, with a focus on projects that serve neighborhoods highly impacted the foreclosure crisis. Our loan products include:

Predevelopment: Funds to support project planning, soft costs, and predevelopment activities to determine project feasibility.

Acquisition:  Funds to acquire real property to create or stabilize low- to moderate-income rental or for-sale housing.

Construction:  Funds for new construction or rehabilitation.

Bridge:  Funds to provide gap/bridge financing with short-term capital.

Lines of credit for the above purposes.

ANDP Loan Fund & Partners Establish Equity ATL Collaborative

JPMorgan Chase & Co. has awarded a $4 million grant to Equity Atlanta Collaborative— a new group that brings together Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs Inc. (ACE), Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership (ANDP), and Reinvestment Fund. The nonprofits will work together to provide targeted loan capital and consulting services for high-quality affordable housing projects and small businesses in underserved communities in south Atlanta and Gwinnett County.

As part of JPMorgan Chase’s PRO Neighborhoods initiative, the new Equity Atlanta Collaborative partnership was selected and is one of five projects nationwide led by Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) to accelerate economic recovery. The five CDFI collaboratives selected for the grant are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Miami and New York. A total of $20 million will be granted this year as part of JPMorgan Chase’s $125 million, five-year PRO Neighborhoods commitment.

These collaboratives bring CDFIs together to pool resources and expand lending activities for important projects such as building affordable housing, education facilities, opening retail centers, and supporting main street businesses in key neighborhoods. The Equity Atlanta Collaborative will focus on creating or preserving over 700 affordable housing units and establishing over 1,000 jobs through small business and housing development.  MORE
