Our thoughts: Proud of housing initiative?
Placeholder Image
We fully support the Covington City Council’s effort to secure the Georgia Initiative for Community Housing grant. This grant doesn’t provide money, but it does provide access to housing experts who in turn will help city officials turn the city’s housing improvement goals into reality.

The city hastily applied for this grant last year but were not prepared; this year city officials have done their homework well.

The city of Covington has neighborhoods desperately in need of revitalization. We are pleased our elected officials recognize this and are making every effort to secure professional assistance as well as federal and state funds to help improve blighted areas of our community.
