SB 210 Georgia Legacy Program for Conservation Funding
This bill would create the Georgia Legacy Program. The Georgia Legacy Council would be created to administer and approve loans and grants made available to any city, county, department, agency, other state authority, or nongovernmental entity of the state with a qualifying Georgia Legacy project. Funds will be made available through the Georgia Legacy Trust Fund and the Georgia Legacy Revolving Fund, both in the form of grants and loans. The lists of qualifying projects are outlined in the bill. The Georgia Legacy Program in this currently proposed legislation would be subject to appropriations, or a future funding mechanism to be determined.
