AUGUSTA NEIGHBORHOOD IMPROVEMENT CORPORATION

AUGUSTA NEIGHBORHOOD IMPROVEMENT CORPORATION

Augusta Neighborhood Improvement Corporation (ANIC) was established with a mission to revitalize the inner city neighborhoods of Augusta by creating affordable housing for low to moderate-income families while engaging the private and public sectors.

The 1982 Master Plan recommended the development of a non-profit neighborhood corporation, and ANIC became that corporation. ANIC was started with public (city and state) and private support. ANIC was created by then Mayor Bob Young, Augusta Tomorrow Executive Director and former Mayor DeVaney and then Senator Charles Walker. The initial board included many members of Augusta Tomorrow, Inc. Bank of America provided the initial seed money for ANIC until city and state monies became available.
