SNDSI Funders


SNDSI and its partners in the Preservation of Pittsburgh (POP) have crafted an ambitious plan to significantly revitalize Atlanta's Pittsburgh neighborhood, returning it to the safe, vibrant neighborhood it once was. Such a holistic, comprehensive, and large-scale revitalization effort requires a diverse array of partners, philanthropic funders, and investors.

Supporting the Preservation of Pittsburgh


While SNDSI and its partners continue to recruit additional investors, including both traditional development investors and public and private philanthropic donors, an early list includes:


  • The Annie E. Casey Foundation  which provides grants and loans to support acquisition and operations.
  • The City of Atlanta Office of Housing which manages the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and the HOME Investment Partnership Program funding in Atlanta.
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development which provides Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds to the City of Atlanta for the acquisition and redevelopment of foreclosed properties in blighted areas.
  • JPMorgan Chase has provided programmatic support and is donating its foreclosed holdings in the Pittsburgh neighborhood.
  • Open Society Foundations which provides funding to support efforts to link residents to comprehensive supports and to evaluate the implementation of a Project Based Rental Assistance pilot. 
  • Enterprise Community Partners which provides "green grant" funding to support energy efficiency upgrades to POP homes that go above and beyond those required to meet the EarthCraft standards and funding to provide pre-planning community engagement to support master planning. 
  • Living Cities has provided operational support dedicated to the development of financial infrastructure to support SNDSI's activities.
