Georgia Advancing Communities Together, Inc. (Georgia ACT) is a statewide membership organization of nonprofit housing and community development organizations. Our mission is to build and support a statewide network of thriving member organizations and trained professionals engaged in housing and community development serving families with limited housing choices.
ACT Connect! ACT Advocacy! ACT Capacity!
Connect and convene CDCs and nonprofits – These organizations are still doing the largest share of affordable housing in the State of Georgia. Georgia ACT assesses their needs in order to address these needs and builds the capacity of these organizations with the end goal of improving life outcomes for the residents in the neighborhoods and communities these nonprofits serve.
Build a broad-based constituency of stakeholders committed to housing advocacy – Our industry has close ties to the work of health, education, workforce development and employment, safety, arts and culture, utilities and other industries. Our missions and success are interconnected. Georgia ACT engages these stakeholders in order to identify how we can collaborate and leverage our limited resources for the good of all Georgia families.
Build industry capacity – Georgia ACT seeks to build the capacity of our member organizations and the larger industry via training, leadership/professional development opportunities, and technical assistance. We host an annual conference, workshops, webinars, and share information and resources on an ongoing basis. Our goal is to strengthen organizations for greater impact in their communities, especially in Georgia’s low income and underserved communities.
