College Hill Alliance

The mission of the College Hill Alliance was to assist the community in creating positive change to the physical and social fabric of the College Hill Corridor, a two-square mile area between Mercer University and Macon, Georgia's downtown business district.

Created by a three-year, $2 million grant from the Knight Foundation, the College Hill Alliance was a department of Mercer University and became operational in the fall of 2009. In September 2012, the Knight Foundation awarded $2.3 million toward continuing the Alliance's work and expanding its influence to assist entrepreneurs in the area.

After six years in operation, over $200 million in investment leveraged, and numerous economic and cultural development awards, the Alliance officially sunset on December 31, 2015.
