County Seeks "Economically Depressed" Rank

“Economically depressed” is the designation some northeast Georgia county commissioners are hoping to gain for county.

Jackson County officials say the listing would give them access to federal low-interest bond money.

The bond money could be used by an electronics company planning to build a facility and hire up to 400 people.

It’s up to the state Department of Community Affairs to reallocate Georgia’s more than $500 million dollars of federal recovery money for local governments that did NOT get bonds last year.
