Far too many families of color have been priced out of their homes in Savannah. According to the Housing Savannah Task Force, about 40% of households in the city cannot afford quality housing, and a single person would have to work 2.5 jobs at minimum wage just to afford a one-bedroom apartment.
Without housing security, communities cannot thrive and culture suffers. Galvan is committed to helping Savannah push back, just as we have helped Hudson for the past 10 years. To start, we launched a partnership with the Savannah Land Bank Authority, the Community Housing Services Agency (CHSA), and the Savannah Affordable Housing Fund to build or preserve nearly 100 homes in Cuyler-Brownville. The project will include over $5 million in capital investment and an additional $1 million grant to the Savannah Affordable Housing Fund.
