CHIP - Community HOME Investment Program
Madison utilized Sherry Kurtz of Grant Specialists of Georgia, Inc., to compete in the state annual competition for housing rehabilitation funds.  Administered by the Georgia Dept. of Community Affairs, CHIP funds are used to assist existing low income homeowners with home improvements, addressing substandard housing code and safety issues.

On May 24, 2016, Madison became one of the 16 award recipients, in part because of the concentrated work of the GICH Team and the support of the Madison First United Methodist Church.  Huzzah!
