While program policies and guidelines remain in effect, NO LOCAL DEVELOPMENT FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE for State Fiscal Year 2007, the period from July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007. If funding is restored by the Georgia General Assembly, a notice will be posted at this website location.
The Local Development Fund is designed to provide limited state assistance
for community projects that arise out of local planning and development efforts.
It is the intent of the Local Development Fund to be flexible enough to respond
to unique local needs without duplicating other sources of assistance. Applicants
should address the consistency of their proposed project with their comprehensive
plan or, if applicable, their solid waste management plan.
Eligible applicants are limited to municipalities, counties, consolidated
governments and joint partnerships of municipal, county and consolidated
Dates for Local Development Fund competition will be announced by the
Commissioner of the Department of Community Affairs based upon the level
of appropriations provided by the Governor and General Assembly.
