Grant & Loan Awards: Habersham County


Habersham County

Equity Fund: $268,973

Awarded: 11/07/2007

Applicant: Tallulah Falls, Town of

Equity funds to assist with public infrastructure improvements to the Town's water system by providing a backup source of drinking water and upgrading/replacing their 30-year old PVC waterlines with 6-inch ductile iron pipe. The Town has a population of 200; however, an estimated 250,000 visitors travel to Tallulah Gorge State Park and YMCA camp each year, pushing the Town's current infrastructure beyond its limits. The current system includes one well and 3-inch lines that are deteriorating and inadequate to serve current business or support growth. Improvements, including a second well and replacement of 4,089 LF pipe, would allow for the development of a 55-room lodge and a U.S. Forest Service district office that will employ between 30 and 35.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $293,973
