Southface programs

Through programs at Southface, we are able to further our reach to the people we serve. Whether in partnership with other nonprofits, government agencies or stakeholders, Southface works to provide a healthy built environment for all. We achieve this in several different ways with our various programs. With Grants to Green, we partner with The Community Foundation to reduce the water and energy usage of nonprofits across the region. By significantly reducing their utility bills, nonprofits are able to fund more mission-driven services. With the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge, Southface works as the technical arm to assist the participants in reaching their goals. Learn about the full scope of the programs we administer below.
