Lower Savannah Council of Governments has been a great partner for Aiken Technical College. The missions of both organizations are aligned in that we each want to improve the quality of life for residents in our region. One of our goals as a College is to promote economic development by providing a quality education to develop a workforce that meets the needs of area employers. LSCOG’s assistance, the College was awarded a $2.6 million grant from the US Economic Development Administration to go toward construction of the center, In addition, the organization has been a partner in helping us to increase access to higher education in the Aiken County area. Its Workforce Innovation and Opportunites Act program allows several residents the opportunity to pursue their education at the College and go on to gainful employment or to further their education. We are appreciative of the partnership we have with LSCOG and greatly calue their support

Lower Savannah Council of Governments has been an essential partner with the Town of Williston. For a small town such as ours, with limited personnel and financial resources, the support we get from LSCOG is invaluable. They have helped us secure and administer grants to improve our water system in Williston. The Town could not have accomplished many of these projects without the assistance of Lower Savannah Council of Governments.
