From the Mayor of Atlanta

“The City of Atlanta’s motto is Resurgens – Latin for ‘rising again.’ Resurgens is more than an emblem, it is part of the One Atlanta way, coming together as one community to support each other in times of need. As COVID-19 continues to challenge Atlanta’s small businesses and the communities that depend on them, the Resurgence program will provide funds to help businesses operate safely and protect their employees as our city recovers together.” - Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
