Residential Champions

Residential communities in Arlington County can be recognized and rewarded for their leadership and dedication to transportation programs when they participate in Champions. No matter what your community looks like – with 15 units or 150, a garden apartment building or luxury highrise – there are so many ways to become a Champion and to make an impact.

Through your partnership with ATP, your property will see immediate benefits, including:

  • Recruitment and retention of residents
  • Operational cost savings
  • Improved resident health, well-being and satisfaction
  • Community involvement and visibility
  • Competitive advantage and increased marketability
  • Environmental stewardship

As a Multi-Family Residential Champion, you’ll receive great perks and opportunities to be featured around the County. Every Champion is recognized and rewarded; however, the higher your level, the more benefits your residential property receives.
