In January 2011, Gov. Nathan Deal directed the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) to develop and launch the Governor’s Water Supply Program (GWSP). The purpose of the program is to align and mobilize the resources of the state of Georgia to assist local governments with developing new sources of water supply adequate to meet future water demand forecasts. GEFA convened the Water Supply Task Force (WSTF) that provided expert guidance in the program’s development and implementation.
GEFA worked with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and other WSTF members to develop the report provided to the Governor in December 2011, which outlined recommendations for the program. GEFA and DCA also developed workshops designed to assist communities seeking funding through the program.
The application period for round two is now closed. Should you have any questions regarding the GWSP, please contact Matt Harper.
