March 28, 2024
Congratulations to the seven community teams selected for Appalachian Gateway Communities Initiative (AGCI) 2024!

Since 2007, ARC has partnered with The Conservation Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts on AGCI to help communities bordering national and state parks, forests, and other public lands develop thoughtful tourism strategies.

Next month, leaders from these communities will head to Decatur, AL, where they’ll create plans around local assets to attract more visitors, bolster downtowns, expand events, enhance visitor services, and more.

Please join us in celebrating this year's participants!
