Clinch County EDRP Study Underway

The Clinch County Development Authority applied for and won a research grant through Georgia Tech’s Economic Development Research Program (EDRP). The EDRP research will be conducted this spring and summer.


Researchers from Georgia Tech’s Center for Economic Development Research will be in the community, meeting with the county’s industry leaders, community leaders, stakeholders, and state partners. They will assess county trends and previous planning efforts. Their goal will be to identify industries within the county that align with its strengths and assets. This will give county leaders a better understanding of how to strategically position Clinch County for quality economic growth in the coming decades.edrplogoProject Highlights: Researchers at Georgia Tech have developed an 8-step process to help Clinch County facilitate economic growth as effectively as possible.
