2022 Call for Projects – LCI & CDAP

The Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) and Community Development Assistance Program (CDAP) are two of the ARC’s most impactful and well-recognized local planning assistance programs.

Since 2000, the LCI grant program has helped 127 communities throughout the Atlanta region re-envision their downtowns and transit nodes as vibrant, walkable places with increased mobility options. CDAP provides technical assistance to local governments to improve quality-of-life in their communities by improving access to resources such as healthy food, affordable housing and employment opportunities.

The LCI program seeks applications for projects that advance creative placemaking, affordable housing, green infrastructure, and smart city technology. The program will continue last year’s pilot initiative to fund applicants that focus on creative placemaking around bus stops with LCI areas to promote safety, accessibility, and transit ridership.
