Tyler Perry Donates $2.75 Million to Atlanta Elders So They Can Keep Their Homes
Thursday, Feb 16, 2023
Tyler Perry is out here doing Good Deeds by keeping elderly people in their homes!
The media mogul reached out to Mayor Andrew Dickens to talk about low-income elderly homeowners who are at risk of losing homes due to increased property taxes. Many of the senior citizens, who are on a fixed income, have been displaced because Tyler Perry Studios has increased the value around the neighborhood and they can’t afford their property taxes.
As a resolution, Tyler Perry is footing the bill and donating $2.75 million dollars to low-income senior citizens that live near his studio, so they can keep their homes—which includes $750,000 this year to cover back taxes, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Additionally, Tyler has pledged to pay $500,000 over the next four years to ensure 300 senior citizens are not displaced from their homes.
