About

  • 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.
