The governments in these listings are not in compliance with DCA minimum standards under the Georgia Planning Act, the Georgia Solid Waste Management Act or the Service Delivery Strategy law and are therefore ineligible for selected state assistance programs and/or solid waste permits (see program details below the table). This list is continuously updated and is accurate as of the current date. For further information about specific compliance requirements, please contact the person listed below.


Comprehensive Planning Service Delivery Strategy
Governments that adopt DCA-approved comprehensive plans consistent with DCAs Local Planning Requirements (and Capital Improvement Element Updates consistent with the Development Impact Fee Compliance Requirements, where appropriate) are awarded "Qualified Local Government" (QLG) status. This provides eligibility for a package of financial incentives from DCA, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA), and the OneGeorgia Authority.

The communities listed below will be awarded "QLG" status once the necessary materials have been approved by DCA and adopted, locally. Communities not listed below already have QLG status.
Georgias Service Delivery Act (OCGA 36-70-20) promotes efficient, effective delivery of local government services and helps prevent taxpayers from paying to receive the same services from multiple local governments. Communities listed below do not currently have a DCA-verified Service Delivery Strategy on file. This adversely affects the assistance these communities can receive from all state agencies that provide grants, loans, permits, including and beyond those associated with QLG status.

Once the necessary materials have been verified by DCA, the communities listed below will regain eligibility for all affected programs.
