Certified Sites

The Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) Program offers 60+ industrial sites that are ready for fast-track construction projects through advance due diligence.

To qualify for GRAD status, available sites must meet the program’s due diligence standards, be reviewed by a third party and earn the final approval of a steering committee comprised of public and private sector economic development professionals.

Categories of due diligence include:

  • Phase I environmental assessment
  • Preliminary geotechnical investigation
  • Cultural and endangered species investigation
  • Zoning designation
  • Utility service assessment
  • Wetlands and stream delineation
