Welcome to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs

Economic Development Financing Packet

This packet contains information about various federal, state, and local financing programs that directly or indirectly benefit Georgia businesses or those businesses interested in making Georgia their home. Many of these programs may also directly benefit local governments. We have also included information on the Secretary of State's First Stop Business Information Center. The Center should be helpful to persons who are considering starting a new business or who need information on where to obtain licensing and permits. This packet also contains a section on the Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA provides a number of programs that are useful to potential and existing business owners.
