The cities of Adel, Douglas, Eatonton, Forsyth, Rossville, Villa Rica, and Washington have been designated as Rural Zones by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and were recognized at the agency’s annual Fall Conference in October.

The 2017 legislative session marked the creation of the Rural Zones program. The General Assembly tasked DCA and the Georgia Department of Economic Development with implementing and overseeing this initiative which provides tax credits to individuals creating jobs and making qualifying investments within historic downtown areas.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
