Four families are enjoying new homes at affordable prices in Gainesville thanks to a partnership between the city and state. The city — through the Gainesville Non-Profit Development Foundation — provided land, and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs awarded a $1 million grant to make the dream of homeownership possible. To qualify for the program, buyers had to meet strict income limits.
