2020 Call for Projects

ARC’s Community Development Group strives to help local communities throughout metro Atlanta address their most pressing land use and development issues to improve the quality of life for all our region’s residents.

The Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) and Community Development Assistance Program (CDAP) are two of our most impactful and well-recognized local assistance programs. We will be issuing our 2020 annual call for projects on January 13th-February 28th, inviting cities, counties, CIDs, and non-profits to submit applications to either program.

If you missed the open house, you can review application information from the webinar below:

Livable Centers Initiative

LCI is a grant program that incentivizes local jurisdictions to re-envision their communities as vibrant, walkable places that offer increased mobility options, encourage healthy lifestyles and provide improved access to jobs and services.

Community Development Assistance Program

CDAP provides technical assistance to local governments and non-profits across the 10-county metropolitan region to undertake local planning activities that advance the goals of the Atlanta Region’s Plan.
