Before You Apply

Before applying for grants, make sure to get your house in order by completing these pre-requisites well in advance of submitting a grant application. These are usually one-time or once-a-year steps, but do not delay as it may take several weeks to complete.


Being in compliance with audits and other reporting requirements ensures your city remains eligible for state grant awards and programs, such as DCA's Community Development Block Grant. On May 19, 2023, GMA hosted a webinar with the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts to provide cities with an overview of local audit and reporting requirements.
