Livable Centers Initiative Program & Studies

The livable centers initiative (LCI) is a program offered by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) that encourages local jurisdictions to plan and implement strategies that link transportation improvements with land-use development strategies to create sustainable, livable communities consistent with regional development policies. Planning grants are awarded on a competitive basis to local governments and non-profit organizations to prepare plans to study and enhance areas.
