Regional Economic Assistance Projects (REAP)
Program Description | Downloads & Related Links | Contact Information
Regional Economic Assistance Projects (REAP) provides a mechanism for local and state governments
and the private sector to cooperate on large-scale tourism-related projects with multiple uses that will
create jobs and enhance the local tax base. REAP will assist in producing growth and development,
particularly in rural areas, resulting in additional local tax revenue and providing high-caliber employment
opportunities in the tourism and hospitality industries. Upon meeting the requirements of the REAP
statute and the REAP Rules, including local government endorsement and certification by the Georgia
Department of Community Affairs, a developer of a certified REAP project may apply to the Georgia
Department of Revenue for a state license for the sale of malt beverages, wine, or distilled spirits by
the drink for consumption on the premises only.
