The Atlanta Economic Mobility, Recovery and Resilience Plan is a comprehensive strategy designed to create better economic and social outcomes for the city's residents, particularly those in Black and Brown communities. These communities are often characterized by low family incomes, high rates of poverty and unemployment. The Department of Community Planning (DCP) is dedicated to helping residents, but does not provide all services related to economic development. For assistance with economic development, DCP recommends partnering with Invest Atlanta and county health departments. These organizations can be found on the local business resources page.
Additionally, the DCP Office of Community Housing Development & Neighborhood Revitalization works to improve the quality of life in the Atlanta metropolitan area by providing specific programs, outreach and investment in neighborhood commercial areas. The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is also a strategic partner in this effort, committed to encouraging collaborative regional approaches that will benefit the city. Through this partnership, ARC works to ensure that all residents have access to the resources they need to succeed. The Atlanta Economic Mobility, Recovery and Resilience Plan is an ambitious initiative that seeks to create a more equitable future for all Atlantans. By partnering with organizations like Invest Atlanta and ARC, DCP is working to ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive. The plan is an important step towards creating a more equitable future for all Atlantans. It is essential that we work together to ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need to succeed.
Invest Atlanta and ARC are two key partners in this effort, providing essential services and support for economic development initiatives. By leveraging these organizations' expertise and resources, we can unlock the path to economic mobility for all Atlantans.
