A 5.1 million dollar grant is bringing in more jobs to Southwest Georgia. Governor Roy Barnes explains, "OneGeorgia has a stream of funds...to create jobs in rural Georgia. "
Governor Barnes says the only way to bring in money is to invest money. The OneGeorgia Authority met in Moultrie today to give out 12 checks to rural Georgia. Four of those checks are expected to improve economic development in Southwest Georgia.
Governor Barnes and Lt. Governor Mark Taylor held their OneGeorgia Board meeting at Moultrie City Hall today. They decided to give out awards in Moultrie because Farmland National Beef got the first ever OneGeorgia grant. The new grants help bring in hundreds of more jobs to this area. Governor Barnes says, "One of the things I've always said, rural Georgia did not receive attention it had in the last few years. The program will jump start that prosperity."
