LCI Transportation Program

The Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) helps to create vibrant, walkable communities across metro Atlanta. Communities that have completed an LCI study are eligible to apply for funding for transportation projects that support the goals of their study and the program as a whole. Funding for LCI transportation projects comes through ARC’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
