Welcome to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs

Regional Commissions


Program Description

Georgia’s twelve regional commissions were created by the Georgia State Planning Act in order to assist local governments on a regional basis and to develop, promote and assist in establishing coordinated and comprehensive planning in the state. The Department of Community Affairs contracts annually with the Regional Commissions to primarily foster effective local and regional planning and implementation of those plans.
