"Atlanta is a cosmopolitan city that celebrates a diverse cultural tradition, high levels of education, and the third-largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the U.S.," the 100RC website says. "However, the city's success has also led to an overtaxed transportation system. … A lack of affordable transportation options also exacerbates growing inequality, impeding the city's neediest from access to food centers and economic opportunities."
Atlanta will be eligible for tools and services valued at more than $200 million from 100RC partners in government, private industry, academia and the nonprofit community. Partners have expertise in such areas as innovative financing, technology, infrastructure, land use and community and social resilience.
