Georgia Housing Corps

The Equal Justice Works Georgia Housing Corps (GHC) mobilizes 11 Fellows and seven Community Advocates to preserve affordable housing for low-income residents harmed by the foreclosure crisis in the state of Georgia.

Fellows and Community Advocates serve two-year terms, providing a combination of services including client representation on housing and housing-related issues, community outreach and education to community members and property owners, and advocacy to remove systemic barriers to housing at the local and statewide levels. GHC is supported by the Georgia Bar Foundation.

GHC is open to legal services organizations in the state of Georgia that have a history of working to increase access to safe and affordable housing for low-income state residents. Organizations must provide legal supervision, a work space, all materials needed for work. Equal Justice works will provide funding for fringe benefits and other support to the organization. Additionally, Equal Justice Works will provide $48,000 annually toward a Fellow’s salary during the two-year term, plus $1,600 per year in LRAP, if eligible; Community Advocates will receive $30,000, plus $1,200 for LRAP, if eligible.

Applications for GHC are no longer being accepted. You can find a list of organizations currently hosting GHC Fellows and Community Advocates below.
