Atlanta Development Authority Awards $3.3 Million To Revive Vine City and English Avenue

The Atlanta Development
 Authority awarded 
$3.3 million in grants to the Vine City and English Avenue communities — part of $15 million the agency has given the area over four years.  Vine City is bounded by Northside Drive on the east and Lowery Boulevard on the west and is one of the city’s most depressed areas.  Forty-one percent of Vine City residents live below the poverty line and crime is twice as high there as anywhere else in the city.

The grants are part of a $15 million multi-year plan to revive the area through economic development.
