Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Unfortunately, our city livability partnership with Waste Management ended in 2019. Here is information about the most recent award recipients. Please continue to check for other grant and award opportunities.


The Conference of Mayors City Livability Program, sponsored by Waste Management, Inc., honors mayors and their city governments for developing programs that enhance the quality of life in urban areas. Established in 1979, the City Livability Awards are given annually to ten mayors and their cities–a first-place award and four Outstanding Achievement Awards for cities under 100,000 population, and a first-place and four Outstanding Achievement Awards for cities of 100,000 or more inhabitants.
