The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) partners with communities to create a climate of success for Georgia’s families and businesses through community and economic development, local government assistance, and safe and affordable housing. Using state and federal resources, DCA helps communities spur private job creation, implement planning, develop downtowns, generate affordable housing solutions, and promote volunteerism. DCA also helps qualified low- and moderate-income Georgians buy homes, rent housing, and prevent foreclosure and homelessness.
DCA coordinates a variety of economic incentives and tools, tax credits, and financing plans and works with and supports a variety of other state and local agencies, including the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) in their mission to promote economic development in Georgia. DCA economic development finance programs include OneGeorgia Authority funds and programs, the Regional Economic Business Assistance program, the Georgia Business Expansion and Support Act income tax credit programs and many others.
In April 2012, the Georgia General Assembly passed and Governor Nathan Deal signed legislation updating the state’s Open Records Act to promote economic competitiveness, provide clarity on the responsibilities of state and local governments and increase transparency for residents of the state. The revised and strengthened code will keep the state’s sensitive information regarding economic activities confidential while ensuring that a citizen’s personal information is protected, respecting the right to privacy.
