Centerville Housing Team

The Centerville Housing Team is a product of the City of Centerville’s participation in the Georgia Initiative for Community Housing (GICH), dedicated to helping communities improve the quality of life and economic vitality by developing locally driven housing and revitalization strategies.

GICH provides ongoing technical assistance as well as organizing and sponsoring retreats for the participating communities. GICH partners include Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA), Georgia Municipal Association (GMA), University of Georgia (UGA) Housing and Demographics Research Center, and UGA Office of the Vice President of Public Service and Outreach. GICH provides a platform for teams to create innovative solutions and network with housing professionals, city officials and staff, as well as community volunteers from across the state.

The Centerville Housing Team meets throughout the year to discuss housing issues affecting residents of Centerville. We also participate in two annual retreats through the GICH program. The Centerville Housing Team strives to support Centerville residents with their homes by building community pride and educating the public on housing resources. In addition, the Centerville Housing Team will promote housing that is available, attractive, and attainable.

Currently, Centerville Housing Team is working on identifying residents who may qualify for our 2021 Community HOME Improvement Program.  If you have questions about qualifying for this program, please contact our Grant Administrator, Sherry Kurtz, at (229) 928-5954. Please note, you must own and reside in your property and this opportunity does have strict income and location requirements in order to qualify.
