Housing Incentive Program

Increasing police visibility not only deters crime, but also improves the community's perception of safety.  Both play a vital role in stabilizing Atlanta neighborhoods and creating a safer place to live.

Background

In 2010, the Atlanta Police Foundation made a commitment to strategically develop and channel resources toward increasing police visibility - a critical priority aimed at making the Atlanta Police Department a best-in-class law enforcement agency, and the City of Atlanta a safer city. 

In support of APF's commitment, 2011 marked the launch of the APF Housing Incentive Program - a strategic public safety initiative to increase police visibility in Atlanta neighborhoods, by way of housing incentives to encourage more Atlanta police officers to live in the city.

The Opportunity

At present, approximately 19% of Atlanta police officers live inside city limits.  Increasing police visibility not only deters crime, but also improves the community's perception of safety.  Both play a vital role in stabilizing Atlanta neighborhoods and creating a safer place to live.

The Atlanta Police Department reaching a milestone goal of 2000 officers in 2013, coupled with the current economic demand to stimulate the housing market, have provided a tremendous opportunity to significantly increase the number of Atlanta police officers living within city limits.

Our Strategy

Through the support of our donors, partners, and community stakeholders, the APF Housing Incentive Program has created a comprehensive, incentive-driven model that has attracted nearly 170 new officers to the city since January 2011.  

Resources include:

  • Discounted Rentals
  • Purchase Incentives
  • Courtesy Officer Units
  • Relocation Bonus Incentives
  • Retention Incentives
  • Down Payment Assistance Programs
  • ...and much more!

Get Involved

Join us in growing our selection of resources by enrolling your property for rent or sale to an Atlanta police officer, or by making a donation to the APF Housing Incentive Program to help us increase police visibility in your building, neighborhood, and community.
