Fannin Economic Development Updates
Internet needs:
Please take under 5 minutes to help Fannin County with a survey related to internet service at your home in Fannin (or in close proximity to Fannin, such as Cherry Log). This survey data will help determine areas of the county with the greatest need for improved internet (ie high-speed internet service from Blue Ridge Mountain, TDS, or ETC). Click here to complete the survey. Please share this survey with employees, friends, and family.
Job Fair 5/12:
Despite a cold and rainy day, we had a huge turnout of employers at UNG Blue Ridge for our first co-hosted job fair with Economic Development, Fannin Chamber, and the University. We all know workers are hard to come by lately, but we had some dedicated applicants come out in the rain. We will watch the need for employment over the coming months and consider another fair in the future. Meanwhile, you can post any jobs you have available on the Fannin Development Authority website. Just fill out this quick form.
Unemployment:
Effective 6/26/21, Georgia is no longer participating in the Federal Program American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
Here’s What Georgia Unemployment Insurance Looks Like Starting June 27, 2021.
To be eligible for state Unemployment Insurance (UI), individuals must:
  • Be unemployed through no fault of their own.
  • Be monetarily eligible (have enough wages from past employers to qualify).
  • Be able to work.
  • Be available for work.
  • Actively seek work.
  • Be registered with Employ Georgia.
  • Not refuse suitable work, if offered.
Remember that you can report fraud if individuals are taking advantage of unemployment. Click GDOL’s website here to report.
