Like the City of Atlanta overall, neighborhoods in the Westside Future Fund area have seen notable shifts in their demographics. The area saw a population loss of nearly 563 residents between the year 2000 and 2017 despite the city experiencing population gains overall.

This recent decline in population is part of a larger trend of population loss that started in the 1960s. One of the Westside Future Fund’s goals is to repopulate the Westside as a mixed-income community. Check out the Westside Future Fund’s impact goals on our website.
