RE: Immediate Needs Community Grants Now Available From GHFA
The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) Executive Committee met last week to address the current COVID-19 crisis unfolding in communities across Georgia. Effective immediately, GHFA is opening applications for Immediate Needs Community Grants to provide assistance to GAFP member communities. Some examples of these grant solicitations could be housing, transportation and/or food and medicine for individuals that are in a fragile or dangerous situation.
Because our members are on the front lines of public health issues affecting their communities, grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to GAFP members to address immediate local needs. Grant applications have been streamlined and a review/approval process has been implemented so we can transmit funds within 3-5 days.
The application period is open effective March 23, 2020. The application is below – or a fillable application can be found on the GHFA website at www.georgiahealthyfamilyalliance.org . Contact Kara Sinkule – firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-321-7445 with any questions.
