84 communities have benefitted from the GICH Program.
Launched in 2004, GICH grew out of Georgia’s experience with the National League of Cities’ Affordable Housing Program and the Magnolia Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing. This unique program is made possible by the hardworking collaboration of partners and in-kind supporters.
2022 Spring Retreat Sponsors
Georgia Power is our founding sponsor. The Archway Partnership, Carl Vinson Institute of Government, and UGA Extension provide in-kind support, and the program is partially funded by a USDA Rural Development RCDI grant.
