Atlanta Civic Circle and Canopy Atlanta are teaming up to produce The Cost of Living, an investigative reporting and community storytelling project about housing in Atlanta.

It is no secret that affordable housing has long been a critical issue in Metro Atlanta, further exacerbated by rapidly escalating home and rental costs, stagnating wages, and inflation. This issue is at the crux of so many others—equity, gentrification, rapidly changing demographics, crime, education, and economic mobility. 

Together, we will explore how everyday Atlantans are impacted by these challenges and what collective action is necessary to co-create an equitable future.
