Congratulations on receiving a Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant. The Atlanta Regional Commission is excited to support your efforts to improve quality of life in your community.
Since 2000, the LCI program has invested more than $312 million in 120 communities to foster the development of vibrant, walkable places that offer increased mobility options, encourage healthy lifestyles, and provide improved access to jobs and services.
Your ongoing support of ARC and the LCI program is critical to ensure that we can continue helping communities like yours around the region pursue innovative, inclusive planning initiatives.
How you can help:
- Mention ARC’s Livable Centers Initiative when writing about your LCI project in news releases, your website, social media, speeches and presentations, and media interviews.
- Use the LCI and ARC logos on signs at project construction sites, PowerPoint slides, videos, and reports.
- Acknowledge the funding grant from ARC and LCI at the front of reports, newsletters, interviews, and webpages.
To help you communicate our partnership in this work, we have drafted sample language for you to use across your marketing materials. This is meant to be a template, please free to amend as needed.
If at any time you need assistance in determining the best way to include ARC and LCI in your communications, please contact Sam Shenbaga at email@example.com.
