In 2017, AEMI closed on a $7,000,000 NMTC transaction to finance the construction of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta’s 50,000-square foot Leadership and Learning Center. Located on the Westside, the Leadership and Learning Center includes administrative space, six classrooms for the YMCA’s Head Start program, a non-profit training space, a community meeting space, and a farm-to-market grocery store. Providing programs for children, job training, and an affordable community market, the development of this project will boost the livelihood of this area while preserving a historic school building. The Leadership and Learning Center pledges to meet the needs of the city, to anchor a community, and invest in Atlanta’s children.
