The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded $800,000 in its latest round of Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grants to 11 metro Atlanta communities. Once their studies and plans are complete, these communities will be eligible for additional LCI funding for transportation projects needed to implement their plans.

Locally, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District/Central Atlanta Progress received $70,000 to study the improvement of transit stations in the southern end of Downtown, while the City of Atlanta received $40,000 for a transportation study of the Vine City-Washington Park area.
