First Source Hiring Agreement
Connecting Employers to Job Seekers along the Atlanta BeltLine
The Atlanta BeltLine works to connect builders of Atlanta BeltLine projects with job seekers in Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods. To that end, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. created a jobs policy in conjunction with the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency.
Builders who are paid by Tax Allocation District proceeds must sign and adhere to the Atlanta BeltLine first source hiring agreement, which stipulates that new hires must first be recruited from within Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods. The goal is to give residents of the immediate area a head start on applying before positions are opened to the general public.
