State Support Initiatives

At the state level, the City has successfully lobbied the state legislature to pass legislation allowing Atlanta to propose a 1-cent Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) to DeKalb and Fulton counties. The SPLOST would raise about $1 billion, and $500 million could be applied to Atlanta’s sewer improvements program. Other grant and loan programs have been identified.
