About the CLCP, History & Purpose
The State of Georgia launched the Certified Literacy Community Program (CLCP) in 1990 as a means of addressing low adult literacy rates across the state. Improved literacy rates help the state attract new businesses -- and jobs – and increase self-sufficiency among all residents. To qualify as a participant in the CLCP program, Jackson County is required to set a goal of reducing its functional illiteracy rate by 50% within ten years. As a CLCP member organization, we are responsible for securing local community support and sources of funding, implementing a variety of literacy programs, and executing successful strategies to help residents achieve educational and employment goals.
