ACCG Receives Grant from Verizon

The ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation received a $10,000 grant from Verizon to provide internship opportunities to rural counties for the 2024 Georgia County Internship Program (GCIP). GCIP provides grants to counties to hire high school students 16 years of age or older who are dually enrolled in a college program, college and university students, and recent graduates, to learn more about county government. Counties that have a population of 50,000 or below and have not previously participated in the GCIP will be eligible to participate in the Verizon grant. A list of eligible counties can be found here. Details on how to apply for this grant will be provided in the fall.
