Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative Nominates IA’s Dawn Luke to Board

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Dawn Luke, Senior Vice President of Community Development for Invest Atlanta, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative (ALTC).

A coalition of public, private, and community partners, the ALTC supports the creation of permanently affordable housing around the Atlanta BeltLine and throughout the City of Atlanta. The ALTC began in 2009 and functions as a “central server” organization supporting independent non-profit CLCs as they develop and operate permanently affordable housing initiatives. The organization is led by the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Georgia Advancing Communities Together (Georgia ACT), and the Annie E. Casey Foundation Atlanta Civic Site.

Luke’s knowledge and experience as a leader in housing development, finance, and policy will be critical as she advises the ALTC on how to implement new neighborhood-based, resident-controlled community land trusts in Atlanta. She will also ensure the ALTC continues to implement national best practices of community land trusts and remains an effective steward of public, private, and philanthropic funds.

Together, Luke and her fellow board members will help the ALTC make Atlanta a city of mixed-income neighborhoods for generations to come.
