Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens announced an initiative Wednesday  that could produce 1,000 affordable homes on land owned by churches, mosques, and synagogues over the next five years.

The new endeavor — part of nonprofit developer Enterprise Community Partners’ Faith-Based Development Initiative — is projected to deliver 1,000 rental and for-sale units across 52 acres of land owned by 15 houses of worship in Atlanta. Those could include Atlanta First United Methodist Church and Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church, among others.
