Atlanta BeltLine Partners

Partnerships that Provide Possibilities

Projects of great magnitude and significance require extraordinary partnerships to bring them to life. The Atlanta BeltLine is the ultimate example of these kinds of partnerships. In addition to Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) and The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABLP), these are the organizations that work tirelessly to make the Atlanta BeltLine a reality. A successful combination of governmental, non-profit, private and philanthropic partners makes our work possible.

City of Atlanta
The City of Atlanta is the ultimate owner of all components of the Atlanta BeltLine. There is a tremendous amount of daily coordination with the Mayor’s office, City Departments and the City Council to deliver all aspects of the project. Learn more
TAD Partners
In addition to the City of Atlanta, Fulton County and the Atlanta Public Schools are the other taxing jurisdictions that participate in the Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District (TAD).
Invest Atlanta

Invest Atlanta formed ABI in 2006 to be the Implementation Agent for the Atlanta BeltLine, managing all TAD resources and other funding sources.
